Art Star Crafternoons

We have decided to put together a series of what we are calling “crafternoons”, which will essentially be an afternoon of artist studio visits, demonstrations, make & takes, discount shopping & more!  It has always been a goal of ours to integrate education into what we do at Art Star.  We want to offer the public the opportunity to learn more about the artists we carry & to see first hand what goes into the work that they make & also get an intimate view into their daily studio practices.

First up is a visit to glass jewelry artist, Penelope Rakov’s studio in the Crane Arts Building + a demo/make & take with home textile designers Bonnie & Susan of Kaye Rachelle Designs.
