Get Your Craft On at These 5 NoCo DIY Classes
Remember back in elementary school art class when you got to take home the projects you made? It was fun to create your own original pieces, and who wasn't excited to show them off at home afterwards.
We may have all graduated grade school at this point, but that doesn't mean the fun of art class has to end too. Lots of local Northern Colorado businesses actually offer DIY classes, ranging from all sorts of crafts and activities. Not only do you get to let out your inner-creativity, but you also get to walk away with something handmade which is pretty cool.
Below are 5 upcoming classes around town where you can get your craft on:
Get ready to get messy! Flingin' Pots and Gilded Goat Brewing have teamed up to host a night full of mug making. For $30, makers get to choose from 5 pre-made cylinder shapes and are then able to customize the handle and exterior design - this price also includes a drink token. Mug making lasts from 6pm-8:30pm.
