Featured Artists - Shop Schedule and News

Good Morning,

Today we feature Little Shop of Artists schedule for next week and a planned class or two, but first a little news.

We are a happy family at Little Shop of Artists and this weekend one of our own is busy preparing for her son's wedding.  We would like to wish the new couple joy, prosperity and luck on their adventure to the new phase of their lives.  Congratulations!

As many of you may know I have had a medical emergency this week.  The dentist is never fun, and worse when the thing you went in for turns in to five more issues.  Great, sir!  This has kept the shop closed as there is currently only one employee, me.  We will return to our regular schedule Saturday, August 10, 2013, we will be open and as follows.

During the Summer our hours are as follows.  We take appointments, make special arrangements and can even schedule a private sitting if you choose.

Saturday 10 - 6
Sunday 12 - 6
Monday - Although this is our usual weekend day, we may open.
Tuesday - See Monday
Wednesday - We are usually open from 10 - 6 or by Appointment.
Thursday and Friday - 10 - 6

**NOTE: This week I have an appointment with another local business owner and depending on when they are available the shop will be closed that day while I am at my meeting.

As back to school approaches, and the holidays near our schedule will change to accommodate that as well.

Classes: Instruction happens during normal hours of operation at the shop.  We teach lots of crafts and are versed in many different techniques. Classes are about 2 hours to 2-1/2 hours long and the attendees go home with something they made themselves or a new skill.  Materials may be provided by the shop or the attendee may bring their own supplies and materials to work with depending on the lesson.  We offer Individual, Group, Organization or Party Lessons.

Available Lessons:  
Beginner Classes - Crochet, Knitting, *Jewelry Design / Assembly
* Learn a variety of techniques from basic stringing to **wire wrapping and chain maille.
**Wire Wrapping is taught per project exclusively by Sarah Shannon of Wire Witchery.
Chain Maille is taught per weave / project exclusively by Alixandra Browning of The Alchemists Vessel and Blackbird Metalworks.

We also teach intermediate to advanced classes and can help you with that pesky project.

We offer services that range from Custom Design to Private Photography Sittings and Up-cycling or light repair of your current jewelry pieces. 

The shop is always evolving and we hope to have a new artist or two join us here shortly, as well as an end of Summer event that is currently in the planning stages.  More on that soon.
