Building a miniature ship inside a bottle is impressive, but not as impressive as forging a giant glass shell around yourself and waiting for your family to come home and find you. Do something crafty with this Groupon.
$19 for Four Art Classes (Up to $120 Value)
Hands-on art classes include wine-bottle decorating (a $10 value; a $10 additional material cost), which encourages new uses for used wine bottles, such as a candleholder or a centerpiece. Intro to Jewelry Making (a $10 value; a $10 additional material cost) acquaints students with the basics of the craft as they make their own earrings and bracelet. Students can update a home's decor with vintage embellished pillows (a $15 value; a $15 additional material cost), or turn popsicle sticks into two functional bracelets (a $5 value; a $5 additional material cost). Materials are included in some, but not all, classes, and this Groupon does not cover the cost of the materials not included.
Simply Creative Boutique’s rates fluctuate throughout the week.
Simply Creative Boutique
With its rotating cache of handmade accessories, including wooden picture frames, necklaces, and fuzzy scarves, Simply Creative Boutique feels more like someone’s inviting living room than an arts-and-crafts studio. A constantly changing roster of classes taught by owner Jennifer Kaczmarek encourages artists of all skill levels to try their hand at such specialties as creating a piece of jewelry or weaving a basket out of newspapers. Kaczmarek enhances her studio's community vibe with conversational blog posts, informing her customers about upcoming open houses, giveaways, and grudge matches between the warring Decoupage and Macramé families.
