Have A DIY Summer
When it’s too hot to golf or you get tired of sitting by the pool, here are a few ways to make your own fun this summer.
The Bull Room — At this downtown Aberdeen spot, you’ll find funky repurposed furniture, handmade goods from local artists and themed BYOB craft nights. Info.
Aberdeen Bead and Brushes — Enjoy kid-family crafts and daytime summer camps as well as alcohol-friendly paint parties. Plan it right, and you can drop your kids off here while you have fun at The Bull Room, just two doors down. Info.
Jim’s Gems and Gold — Because it rocks. OK, we’re sorry — but this place is way more fun than that sad mountain tourist trap your parents dragged you to. Info.
Wine and Design — Unleash your inner artist in Southern Pines, NC in a fun and social environment. They provide everything, just sign up, show up, sip up and paint! Info.
Flavor Exchange — Get your girls (or your guy, or your kiddos) and try your hand at guided recipes. Info.
Artists League — Finally use that canvas you bought three years ago. Classes are open to everyone. Info.
9th of September — Pick a plate, vase, mug or knick-knack; throw some paint on it and they’ll glaze and fire it for you. Done and done. Info.
Creative Studios — Head up to Vass for drop-in arts and crafts from Thursday-Saturday or take part in one of their many special events. The gallery is available for shopping and the studio is available for parties and private rental. Info.
Gracefully Rustic — Spend your lunch hour making homespun home decor. Info.
MossHound Designs — Watch this adorable shop’s Facebook page for upcoming workshops; previous topics have included watercolor and brush pen lettering, and caring for succulents. Info.
Play Escape — You’re going to be there anyway, so plan for their arts and crafts classes Tuesdays at 3:30 and Friday at 10. Mommy and Me Yoga Classes are every Thursday at 10. Info.
