Make your own gifts this holiday season


Now that Halloween is over, the upcoming holiday season has already begun to blossom in stores nationwide, and with that comes the inevitability of gift giving. Every year around this time, I make a promise to myself that I will not wait until the last minute to do my holiday crafting of gifts. Maybe you're the same way, and if you are, here is a perfect opportunity to keep that promise:

Local mosaic artist Cinder Hypki is hosting a mosaic workshop at her studio in Upper Fells Point tomorrow, November 7, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. During this one-day intensive workshop, Cinder will teach participants the tools of the trade, the materials, and the basic concepts of mosaic art. Cinder has plenty of ready-to-go projects from which to choose, or you can bring your own materials with you. The cost for the workshop is $65 (quite a deal!) and it includes a continental breakfast. Just be sure to bring your own lunch.

And, if you happen to miss this workshop, no need to worry because Cinder will be hosting a holiday mosaic workshop on December 5th.

TO REGISTER: 410-961-7816 or To read more, visit Cinder’s web site.
