Sat. Dec. 11th: Coaster and Cocktail Making Class

Join us on for a hands-on crafting and champagne cocktail class lead by Gold Leaf Artist, Kelly Aiken and Cocktailery owner, Tamu Curtis.

About this experience

If you didn’t already know, we love gold and we love gold leaf even better. Kelly Aiken, is the artist who brought the beautiful wall murals at The Cocktailery to life using her gold leafing and artistic perspective.  

In this 2 hr class, Kelly will teach you the gold leafing technique and lead you through making 4 abstract coasters using gold leaf and acrylic paint which you will then set with resin.  These coasters will make a thoughtful gift to give for the holiday or use them to decorate your bar cart or dinner table.

In between instruction learn to make two simple champagne cocktails with Tamu that will be perfect to serve this season.
