Tapestry Weaving Workshop with MINNA




Our workshop series has been so successful that we've decided to keep the programing going.  We're VERY proud to bring you this tapestry weaving class with Sara Berks of MINNA

What You'll Learn:

In this 3-hour workshop you'll learn the basics of tapestry weaving from warping, plain weave, soumak, how to create shapes and fringe. This isn't enough time to complete a piece, but you'll leave with enough knowledge to do so yourself!

Tickets are $150 - BUY HERE

What's Included:

- Handmade wooden loom made locally in upstate NY
- Tapestry Needle
- Warp
- Enough yarn to finish your piece (If you have a specific vision and have yarn in mind you'd like to use, feel free to bring along!)
- Boozy drinks and snacks

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!  Your creativity never ceases to amaze.

4/22 Celebrate Earth Day with eco jewelry designer Clyde's Rebirth


I take serious pride in running a business dedicated to recycling.  I've loved Clyde's Rebirth for years because of her similar commitment.  Her line of eco jewelry uses vintage / deadstock pieces that she crafts into super modern, minimalist masterpieces.  When I found out she needed to make a trip out to NYC I knew we had to do something together for Earth Day.

In this class you'll learn the tricks and trade of customizing vintage brass pendants into personalized necklaces.

In addition to going home with your one of a kind work of art, we'll also have libations available for when you work up a thirst at the jewelry work bench.  Grab a girlfriend [or 5] and join us for an evening of eco conscious fashion and earning that wine at the metalsmith bench!


Pro tip: These make great gifts, especially since Mother's Day is coming up.

$68 (tix HERE) gets you:

- Necklace making and metal stamping instruction
- Use of pro tools
- A personalized necklace
- Adult beverages 
- Witty banter from a gal who is sure to become your favorite ginger
