Saturdays in the Studio- Quilling!
$15/child $10/additional sibling
Location: 901 richmond road williamsburg, va 23185
Event Website

Quirky Quilling! Saturday 8/8 10am-11:30am Ages 6-+ $15/child $10/additional sibling Registration is required through Artfully Yours Call to register! What's Quilling you ask: Quilling, also known as paper filigree, involves rolling strips of paper into shapes and designs to create a larger picture. The technique first started in the Renaissance when nuns and monks used paper trimmed from the edge of gilded books wrapped around a feathered quill pen. It became popular in the 18th century with high-class women. Today it has seen a rise in popularity. Quilling is now an art form and a means of ornamentation. About the teaching artist: Shannon Kuster is a recent college graduate with a minor in studio art. She took her first traditional art class in kindergarten, refusing to draw anything other than Pokémon. A well-rounded artist, some of her chosen mediums include watercolors, quilling, and metalworking. Shannon now has an Etsy shop devoted to customized silhouettes. Examples of her quilling can be found at Artfully Yours.

Work Nimbly Small Business Scavenger Hunt
Location: Various
Event Website

In order to highlight coworking month, arts month, and to celebrate our anniversary, Work Nimbly is designing and hosting a scavenger hunt! It will be a combination of photos and tasks, focused around cool small businesses in and around Williamsburg. We hope to recognize the positive contributions small businesses brings to the community. Here are the details: - Anyone 18 and over can count as a team member - Teams consist of up to four people - Scavenging will occur over the two week period between August 31st – September 12th Given an objective list at the beginning of the hunt, teams will try to earn as many points as possible completing tasks like visiting your storefront, researching your website, and sharing pictures and posts on social media (to name a few). This will all culminate with a party at Work Nimbly, where the highest point-earning team of Indiana Joneses will be honored with a prize of highest prestige. Work Nimbly is all about fostering small business development and productivity, and this scavenger hunt is a perfect creative way to do it!
