A Division of Handmade at Hoofbeats
An Interactive and Educational Art Studio
Professional Paper Artist, and avid fiber artist Melissa Hatalsky has created a creative space for adults and children alike to explore their creativity in a supportive atmosphere that encourages exploration.
Projects are fun and easily obtainable by anyone with pre-cut kits containing everything needed to create a project with value and meaning. In our workshops, you can make something beautiful and useful for yourself, or an item you would be happy to share with others.
Offering Artistic Entertainment for all Ages
If you would like to join or plan a group social art and craft event for children or adults, we would love an opportunity to talk with you and learn more about how we can help you plan the perfect experience.
We offer various classes and even work with area individuals and organizations interested in learning about how creating art improves overall physical, mental and emotional wellness.
Class and Project Categories
Sip and Sew
Pre-cut projects, easily completed with simple hand-stitching and easily learned embroidery techniques. Spend an afternoon or evening visiting with friends, enjoying snacks and beverages and completing your hand sewn project. ALL materials are pre-cut and included in our kits and any necessary tools are provided. No sewing experience necessary, we will guide you every step of the way!
