301 Tingey Street SE, DC 20003 - Entrance on Water Street
Join us for an opportunity for parents and kids of all ages to get creative together! You’ll meet and design a one-of-a-kind art installation with Carolyn Sewell and sample parfaits from Vegetable and Butcher (V+B).
Carolyn’s work has been published in Communication Arts, PRINT, Grafik, HOW and The Washington Post. She and her daughter, fondly nicknamed “Biscuit”, both have a passion for bright colors and bacon! We’ll gather at Steadfast Supply, a shop whose mission is to bolster the local community by introducing emerging and independent brands and designers into the D.C. market. Bring all of your small ones — whether experienced artists or beginners, everyone is welcome.
There is a $5 refundable charge (per family) to reserve your spot – you’ll get a refund when you show up and check in!
