Daily Walk-In Crafts
We have the space and supplies available for walk-ins during open hours, or take your art kit to go. If you’d like a kit delivered to your doorstep (Ames only), order online at Midwestix.com and we will be there in a day or two. Daily and Art-2-Go Craft offerings will change periodically. The following crafts are open to all ages if accompanied by an adult.
Hours are Monday - Friday from 2-9pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm
Knotted Wall Tapestry Kit
Start with a 5” brass ring and use various knotting techniques to create a boho wall piece. Kits combine luxe yarn in various widths with color palettes that include cream with either gold, pink or mocha.
Hand-stitch a set of three scrunchies! Choose two textiles and we will include a red and gold fabric to round out your trio. Includes elastic and a mini sewing kit so you can stitch with us or when you need a relaxing break from the day. It’s never a bad hair day with a scrunchie!
Using the brilliant colors of alcohol ink, create abstract, bubbly patterns on a set of four coasters.
$8 Walk-In Only
Little Town Kit
Create your own little town for display or play. Kit includes 5 wood blocks, two paint brushes and a color palette. Spring colors include bright pink, sky blue, lemon yellow and white. Summer colors include navy blue, golden yellow, peach puff and white. Paints are mixable for endless hues to incorporate. For more detail, grab a fine line permanent marker and “go to town.” We cut, sand and add roof/awning details by hand so no two kits are alike, and the max height is 6”.
Geometric Painting Kit
Create an abstract painting on a canvas panel by masking off negative space with painter's tape. Color palette choices include Pop (bright pink, blue, orange and teal), Studio (yellow ochre, dark blue, peach and cream) or Modern (grey, light yellow, dark yellow and light blue). Paint brush and directions are included.
