Holiday Shopping just got more Colorful and Fun!

Featured

We’re already pretty colorful and fun around Makers Connect, but just to amp up the volume, we’re bringing in two SUPER colorful folks this weekend to help you gather gifts for the discriminating artsy people in your life.

All day from 11: 00  till 5:00 we host Brad Abrams, a south-east Dallas local phenom known for his sprawling studio compound, where he blows and casts glass.  Color and forms are forever trapped in his giant witch balls!   Janice Somerville, resident of Old Lake Highlands, brings her one of a kind metal ‘Bots, clay heads, and Jetsons-inspired jewelry!  We’ll offer finger snacks and bubbly to enjoy as you browse!

Local / New Artists in house at Makers Connect

Local.  East Dallas.  Artisans.  Crafters.  That is the core of how we started, so why aren’t we celebrating the artists more?  Looking back at some posts on this site we realized we needed to do a better job!  So here goes.

It has been too long we’ve been concentrating on classes but in the interim, some very interesting artists have been knocking on our doors and quietly sneaking into our sphere – the result is that MakCon is slowing morphing from a sweet fuzzy duckling into a full blown, gorgeous Goose!

Check out a few of our new faces and help us to welcome the work of Jeff Barrett, Andrea Smith, Elaine Glasscock, Rachel Cabal, Kelley Vaughan, Susan Morgan, Lottie Minick, Audrey Legatowicz, Kimberley Moore, and Martha Mabry!!  A few now, a few in the next post.
