ART & CRAFT SOCIAL
Thursday, 16 March 2023 | ART Making from 18:00 – 20:30
Art & Craft Social is a free community event bringing together a diverse group of artists, makers, designers, and craftspeople of all levels of experience to share and create in a social setting. Bring a small creative project – drawing, painting, stitching, crocheting, collage, etc, to work on at Art & Craft Social. The Social provides an opportunity to meet new people, get inspired, and learn something new through exposure to the creative work of each person’s project.
Because space is extremely limited, you must RSVP on Art & Craft Social’s Eventbrite listing in order to attend.
- All are welcome. This is an inclusive space for women, women identifying, and LGBTQ2+ people to feel safe and welcome.
- We will do our best to keep our space COVID-safe by having the door open to circulate air. Face masks are optional but encouraged.
