Workshops & learning!

What I love most about doing workshops at The1870 is getting to know the people who are coming out to learn something new. 

It is very rewarding to provide the supplies and instructions to see someone create something special that they feel good about and are proud of. It's hard to put in to words, but this is my absolute favorite thing to get to experience. 

We all need creative outlets, even for those people who tell me they aren't creative, they are! We all are! You just need the tools, the tips and sometimes you need someone to show you some techniques that really help with your project! 

When creating arts and crafts you need to remember like with most things, even though it's a process, when we add joy to the project is when it becomes really magical! Our studio and workshop provides that environment that let's you get in touch with your creative side!

i encourage everyone and anyone to let yourself go, come to a workshop and discover the bliss that is in abundance here in this very special place!
