Like Corky Canvas, the new venture offers guests a fun-filled, unique night out: an instructor-led art project, drinks from the bar and good music. The difference lies in the artistic medium. Instead of painting on a canvas, Corky Boards’ guests select, stain, stencil and paint raw wood materials. Everyone ends the evening with a customized, wall-worthy sign project they can display at home or give as a personalized gift.
“Our instructors will show you how to make these wood signs look like you just pulled them out of an old barn, and the best part is – you’ll be working with stencils. You can’t mess it up!” says owner Angie Lewis.
Corky Boards is holding its first class on Saturday, March 19. All classes are posted online at CorkyBoards.com. Class days and times vary. Prices range from $45-$65, depending on the project. Private parties are also available for groups of 12 or more. For the class calendar (now available through April) and more information, visit CorkyBoards.com.
Corky Boards and Corky Canvas, located next each other at 31st & Farnam St., join a growing category of locally-owned dual concepts within the Midtown Crossing neighborhood, including The Grey Plume and Provisions by The Grey Plume as well as Brix – a Wine and Spirits Experience and Grane.
