NP Artist Studio, Coat Factory Ceramics Studio and many creative makers.
Saturday, November 12, 2pm-5pm
NP Artist Studios is pleased to announce our very first Holiday Craft Fair. Over 30 artists and vendors will be setting up shop to offer one of a kind handmade gifts and original works of art. The event will also offer three exciting demonstrations from its studio tenants. Fiber artist Mercury Hogan will show us how to use a loom and invite our guests to be part of a collaborative piece of fiber art. Guests who wants to try weaving can come up and weave a few inches and have their names labeled into their woven section. Jackie Grandchamps owner of Ceclile’s “Made by Hand, With Care” will be a completely customized experience at Melanger, their exclusive blend bar. They will be allowing guests to personally create their uniquely scented Shea Butter Whips and personalized bathing salt blends with pure, minimally processed enhancers. Cecile’s ingredients are harvested using traditional methods from around the world. Glass artist Stephanie Baness is inviting us into her bright and airy studio where her glass pieces truly come to life! Stephanie will be demonstrating how she gets an image onto a piece of glass by silkscreening, painting and working with stencils. She will also have glass pieces in various stages of the process so that people can see how the steps work together to create the final piece.
The Coat Factory Ceramics Studio on the 3rd floor will also be opening its doors providing a variety of sculptural and functional pottery along with handmade jewelry. They will be offering a selection of special holiday gifts. A variety of vendors will be displaying throughout both floors and refreshments will be served. Please join us on Saturday, November 12th from 2-5pm for a glass of wine, hors d’oeuvres and a unique shopping experience this holiday season. Be part of interactive artistic demonstrations and browse an eclectic assortment of original designs and handmade goods offered by local artists.
