Feelin' Crafty? These Classes Are For You

1
If your favorite class in school — at any age — was arts and crafts, we've got a way to take you back. Enter Urban Craft Lab, a workshop/party boasting a rotating lineup of crafty fun more stimulating than an after-work mixer. Can't draw a stick figure? No problem! These workshops are designed to teach and inspire on all levels.
Next up: Modern Silhouettes, a combination of the art of old-fashioned silhouettes with the antique reverse glass painting process. The result? A contemporary looking home accent just perfect for hanging in your pad. Simply bring in an original or a computer printout picture — or use one of theirs. Frames and other materials (including the light bites and bevs) are all included in the $35 price. In case you get hooked (because we know you will), check out Urban Craft Lab's upcoming fall schedule. Classy Turkey Day centerpieces and holiday wreaths? We're in.
What: Modern Silhouettes Workshop
Where: The Sweden Shop, 3304 West Foster Avenue (at Spaulding Avenue); 773-478-0327
When: Thursday, October 11 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Register: Email urbancraftlab@sbcglobal.net or call 773-539-1716. Cash and credit cards accepted at the event.
