On the International Space Station, brave astro-pioneers pass the time by making crafts—namely, dream catchers to catch the dreams of any nearby aliens dreaming of attacking Earth. Make your crafting dreams come true with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward classes at HodgePodge Art & Crafts Workshop in Westport.
Today's Groupon may be used across multiple visits but, due to the international kiln shortage, is not valid toward for ceramics classes.
HodgePodge shares the fun and artistry of tie-dye, batik, candle and soap making, and mosaics. The various workshops, some in conjunction with University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Communiversity adult-education program, are in constant rotation, with at least one each day. Students seal intricate designs or wistful depictions of their first car on fabric during the two-session batik class ($45), or blend freeform waves of color in a rhapsodic rumba of unplanned beauty with tie-dye classes ($25/class). Candle-making workshops ($25/hour) tap into the art of ancient illumination, and soap-making classes ($20/hour) let budding scrubbers incorporate additives such as color and fragrance into their goat-milk-and-aloe-vera-based glycerin creations.
Inside the studio, rainbow-colored bins and a generously sized, art-stained worktable set the stage for aesthetic innovations by children and adults alike. Groups can schedule their own month-long workshop on four days or nights when everyone in their group is available, there aren’t any conflicting workshops, and Mercury is not retrograde.
