The Art of Authentic Presence

December 5th | Tuesday | 5:30pm – 8:30pm | $18

Authentic presence means being in touch with your true self: heart, mind, body and soul. When you are truly in touch with your Authentic Self you open the door to the rich and wonderful relationships that can occur between human beings, whether at work, play, or in love. Speaking and listening from your Authentic Self is to be fully present, with yourself and your listeners, allowing you “selves” to shine through.

In this class, you will be introduced to a new way of being that allows for deeper and more powerful connections in all of your relationships through a series of experiential exercises. Come and discover your Authentic Self.


Gotta Get Up To Get Down: Painting Sunrises and Sunsets

December 6th | Wednesday | 6:00pm – 8:00pm | $48

Painting like a seasoned, professional artist doesn’t have to be hard. In this class, you’ll learn some painting tricks around painting sunsets and sunrises. Using minimal equipment and household paint to create these beautiful works of art will ensure that you can take these ideas back home and keep creating. All materials are provided in this class.

This class will give you a sense of accomplishment when you finish this piece and hopefully open up avenues of creativity you didn’t think were possible before.

Oh, and there will be drinking and paint fights of course. BYOB.


Creating a 2018 Vision Board

December 7th | Thursday | 5:30pm – 7:30pm | $19

Your new year deserves a vision!

There have been many documented benefits of having a vision board to guide your year, project, career or family. It brings clarity, provides incentive, documents your goals and gives constant inspiration for the journey. But the proof is in its use. Welcome your 2018 with visual representation of all you want to accomplish. All supplies included to make your vision pop, but bring any old magazines or other types of inspiration!


Introduction to Weaving – by Lisa Denney

December 9th | Saturday | 11:00am – 2:00pm | $59

December class – Learn the basics of weaving on a simple frame loom. Beginner weaves and stitches will be covered, and you will begin your very own woven wall hanging to take home (as well as a sweet little loom). Love fiber art? This class is for you. Each participant will be supplied with a small tapestry loom, yarns, and all the necessary tools to create one wall hanging, which we may finish during the 3 hour workshop. Light snacks provided. Feel free to bring lunch.


Mindset Mojo for Happiness in 2018

December 12th | Thursday | 5:30pm – 6:30pm | $17

Happiness isn’t something you have to chase or dole out sparingly only after reaching a particular milestone. This workshop teaches you powerful tools that get to the root of why you have made it hard to achieve and helps you shift your mindset away from old patterns that have been keeping you from showing up with killer happiness!


DIY Holiday Gifts: Simple Syrup

December 14th | Thursday | 6:00pm – 7:00pm | $24

Simple syrup is an essential ingredient to your home bar. It’s also the best way to add a little sweetness to your favorite cocktail, cup of coffee or tea. In this class you’ll learn how to make your own infused simple syrups and you’ll go home with your own bottle to keep or give as a gift.

During the class, we’ll be testing our concoctions in tasty cocktails.


Create Your Own Terrarium

December 16th | Friday | 1:00pm – 2:00pm | $42

Using different living plants, we will create terrariums with a variety of materials. We will have the option of creating a desert habitat, with the use of succulents, and will also have the option of creating a more tropical habitat with the use of moss and other water loving plants. We will talk about the different types of terrariums, why it works to create a mini-ecosystem, and will explore different aesthetic choices you can make when arranging a terrarium.

The class will include all materials necessary to create a terrarium, including the glass container. If you have your own glass container you would like to bring, that’s okay as well!
