Successfully completing a DIY project puts us over the moon. But sometimes, the process can leave us anxiously nibbling at our manicures. Thankfully, Topaz + Arrow, the crafting workshop series dreamed up by accessories designer Virginia Arrisueño and creative guru Morgan Hungerford West, has allowed us to indulge our crafty sides while keeping our nerves in check. On Sunday, August 25, the duo will host their next monthly crafting workshop, entitled “Lace, Lighting, and Jars" — which promises to be just as ethereal and beautiful as it sounds. Sign up for the two-hour session and learn how to make one-of-a-kind lighting fixtures, all while snacking and socializing with like-minded DIY'ers.
