Handmade Holiday Workshops
If you ever wanted to show your friends and loved ones how awesome and crafty you are by giving them a handmade gift this holiday season, this is your chance!
The whole month of December here at TAC’s Manhattan Studio we are having an array of amazing Holiday Workshops just in time to make some handmade goodies for everyone on your list. Best of all our workshops are a one night only event giving you the satisfaction of leaving at the end of the night with a handmade gift and learning a new craft at a great deal ($65!) and they’re all BYOB! Bring a friend, make some crafts together or surprise them all with your talents and crafty flair this season.
