get crafty with the contemporary arts center!
The Contemporary Arts Center in downtown Cincinnati is one of the crafty treasures of the Queen City, and last year they started doing a super-fun series called One Night One Craft. This year’s season has already begun, but there are five craft nights left this summer! In two hours, you’ll learn to make something awesome and maybe even make some friends! It’s just $5 (for materials), and there’s a cash bar if you’d like to drink a little something while you’re crafting. Here’s the lineup for the rest of the season:
- One Night One Craft: Gadget Pocket: Monday, July 30, 2012 at 6 pm
Make your own monster cozy for holding gadgets and accessories with Abby Langdon of abbydid. Using felt, faux fur, and safety eyes, you will hand sew your own toothy companion.
- One Night One Craft: Artist Trading Cards: Monday, August 6, 2012 at 6 pm
Create miniature works of art in this mixed-media collage workshop with Cincinnati-based painter and mixed media artist Tina Westerkamp.

- One Night One Craft: Raw Food: Monday, August 13, 2012 at 6 pm
Get out of the kitchen and go on a culinary adventure that doesn’t require a stove. Join artist and chef Trinidad Mac-Auliffe of Raw Intervention as she leads a workshop on creating tasty heat-free treats.
- One Night One Craft: Terrariums: Monday, August 20, 2012 at 6 pm
Artist and terrarium specialist David Nebert of Living Jewelry will help you turn a glass container into a mini green world. His designs were featured in the last year’s Cincinnati Magazine, so you don’t want to miss this one. Be creative and feel free to bring your own glass container.
- One Night One Craft: Silk Screen Printing: Monday, August 27, 2012 at 6 pm
The pros at Able Projects will share their own silkscreen techniques for quick and easy printing. They will also bring along some premade screens, so that you can pull a print that night. Bring t-shirts, pillowcases, etc. to create your own silkscreened designs.
