The Contemporary Arts Center is a fabulous 'museum' located in downtown Cincy! It has such amazing art and talent inside it's walls. An old and dear friend of mine introduced me to One Night/One Craft which is held at the CAC. I was INSTANTLY hooked...I unfortunately missed the first two (due to my crazy lack of knowing this existed). However, I have attended the last two and plan on going to the rest...and I am very excited about some!!!
Here is the info if you are interested:
DIY sessions for grown-ups!Learn cool new skills this summer with crash courses at the CAC.
Embroidery • Printmaking • Book-binding ...and more
Learn something new in 2 hours. It's like the coolest crafting camp or an olde tyme trade apprenticeship without the bugs, the hassles of a sleepover, or the 10 year learning curve.
Meet others with common interests. This isn't your grandmother's crafting circle (or if it is, your grandma's awesome). This is CAC-style DIY: fresh, engaging and social. This is where you can come together to share resources and knowledge and to build and make cool things.
No commitment. No fees. Just fun.Time: 6-8pm
Dates: June 6, 13, 20, 27, July 11, 18, 25, August 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 (see schedule below)
