Art Workshops


Cost: FREE! No need to register ahead.
Location: VineArts Studio.

Join us on August 24 at 12:00 noon to complete Phase 2 of a community project during our recent Odd Art Festival. (We will be finished around 2:00 pm.) What community project, you ask? Glad you asked!…

PHASE 1 of the Metal Project:

At the Odd Art Festival in July, Beth Routhier with The Moods of Eve invited attendees to ‘make their mark’ on copper sheet metal that she had on her table. Attendees took permanent markers or rubber stamps and placed a design onto the metal. Then, Beth took the metal home and etched the metal with chemicals and cut the metal into odd shapes.

PHASE 2 of the Metal Project: (all new people are welcome to join us!)

In an effort to extend the fun, we’d like to invite our creative community into the studio to release the etched beauty of the designs on the metal and even add a splash of color using alcohol inks, if desired. When you’re done, you can turn your metal piece into a bookmarker, key chain or pendant to take home and enjoy. This event is free and all creatives are welcome.
