Have you heard about the Maker Space at the Ace? It’s something new at Alt Summit this year, and you’ll find it at the Ace Hotel’s Commune building.
We’re picturing the Maker Space as a place where attendees can come when they need a creative break. There you’ll find fresh arts & crafts demos hourly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Demos include brush pen lettering, wood burning, watercolor painting, jewelry-designing, paper flower making, and a whole lot of other good stuff. Find all the details on our app.
JOANN is also hosting two demos in the Maker Space taught by Amber of Damask Love, and Elsie and Emma of A Beautiful Mess.
Amber will be giving a first look at her inaugural product line of quirky, card making supplies available exclusively at JOANN stores. Create your own card for a friend while you’re there and drop it in the mailbox to be shipped off. We’re thinking a wish-you-were-here card would be fitting.
Elsie and Emma will be demonstrating how to craft your own luggage tag. Come see the sisters in their element, learn new crafting tricks, and connect with fellow attendees while creating a memento that you’ll be able to use for your trip home.
Here’s one more new thing we’re introducing this year: An Art Walk featuring a variety of installations from ten incredible artists. We’ve been seeing sneak peeks on Instagram and holy cow, we’re all in for a big treat. You can look forward to:
