One of the best things about living in Somerville is being among talented artists who work both full-time and as a hobby. Nearby Artisan's Asylum offers classes for those interested in learning new skills, as well as Cambridge Adult Education.
Save the date for Saturday, November 11th, to visit Union Square's Workbar for a really cool pop-up of local artists. The event is from 11am - 2pm, and they will have free snacks and beverages available while you check out the Workbar space and browse locally made gifts.
Check the hostess gift off your list, maybe the center piece for your table, the Secret Santa gifts for the 5 office parties you have to attend, something for the Fall wedding and maybe even take time to gift yourself.
There will be jewelry, watercolor & illustrations, photography, ceramics, holiday ornaments, fabrics & wearables & functional art glass.
Insider tip: Follow @glasspaperbykolika on Instagram for her gorgeous local Somerville art, and RSVP on the Facebook event to get a sneak peek of the eleven maker profiles and even place custom orders.
