Art, Wine & Music, Fri 2/28, 5:30pm – 8:30pm


Painting, sculpting & musical fun continue!
Last week we passed around the paint brushes and an acoustic guitar, plus had a surprise visit from a few newcomers!

If you’re a procrastinator like me, let me assure you there is no pressure to this event – just come, hangout, and let your creativity flow :)

Thanks to a few members, we have an ‘easel’ to use now, in the form of a giant digitizer tablet – just make sure to use it for drawing and tempera only, as acrylics and oils would damage it.   The thing is huge!

  • your pot-luck meal and
  • your supplies

…  a $10 donation to help pay for utilities would be nice, if you have it laying around :)

If you’ve never painted before:   I have about 30 sponge brushes, a bunch of tempera paint, and we’ll cut paper off the roll.

Sharpening Workshop – Open to Public

Thursday January 9th at 7:30pm the Appleton Makerspace (powered by DHMN) is hosting a public workshop on sharpening graciously presented by our own Jason Snyder!

Knives, razors, scissors, chisels, blades, or hatchets.

Discover the tools used in sharpening such as whetstones, files, and strops.

Already a seasoned sharpener? Share your knowledge at the workshop.
