We host private parties for up to 12 in our cozy classroom, the perfect way to make your visit to the shop or Luray memorable.
You and your family or friends will have fun and create lasting memories while you make a work of art that you can enjoy for years.
Our most popular event is the silk dyeing class, where no creativity is needed — Susan guides you through making two gorgeous hand-dyed silk scarves.
Often students are so thrilled with the results that they make additional scarves as gifts.
Parties require a minimum of four, and can sometimes even be scheduled with as little as 48 hours notice.
