If you're looking for a night out in Boston, with a twist, don't settle for a regular old night at the bars. Instead unleash your inner artist at the Original Paint Nite by Yaymaker. Perfect for beginners and aspiring artists alike, you can grab a drink—at your own expense—and follow along with your host to start creating. By the end of the night, expect to turn a blank canvas into a work of art that you're free to take home.
Fretish is New England's premier music instrument sharing service. Where musicians can play what they want, when they want, where they want. We'll start by selecting the music instrument you want to play. All instruments have been professionally set up, so you can be confident that the gear is in tune, with low action and a fresh set of strings. After your instrument is selected, confirm the date and time you wish to play. Fretish will hand deliver the instrument to you, within a 25 mile radius of Boston. Then, have fun. Play, record or simply admire your instrument. At the end of your rental period, we will pick up the instrument.
Create coasters and trivets with flair at local bars and restaurants with Make a Mosaic events hosted by Yaymaker. Customers arrange brightly colored glass pieces on ceramic tile to create drink-and-food-saving statement pieces. Coasters and trivets keep your furniture safe, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look good while doing it! Create your own unique designs and make them for yourself, give as gifts, or even better, bring your friends and you’ll each have your own set.
Dig Into a Creative Succulent Party with Plant Nite. Plants. Gotta love ‘em! They can really change the mood of a room. They brighten up spirits with their ability to freshen the air and provide some serious de-stressing vibes. At Yaymaker, we love the idea of getting people together to laugh, share a drink and try a new activity.Plant Nite experience is a lot like our other experiences, with a dash of dirt to keep things interesting. You’ll visit a nearby bar or restaurant where a local host will be your guide for two hours of terrarium making fun. You’ll have just as much fun as you would at an Original Paint Nite event (drinks and friends, check!). Instead of heading home with a beautiful canvas, you’ll be digging into a fun-filled plant design experience.
Dahlia Popovits has been a professional designer and hand weaver for over 40 years, and is happy to teach a how to weave session, and to help the new weaver understand the technical and design choices available through weaving. Absolutely no previous experience is necessary. The space which is used to learn is in my gallery of hand made clothing and accessories, which is attached to my working studio.
