Monday, February 12, 2018
7:00 – 9:00PM
Galentine’s Day is all about ladies celebrating ladies! Unlike Valentine’s Day which is about romantic love, this holiday recognizes the awesome women in our lives. Celebrate with us as we craft and party at the Ace Hotel.
This craft party will be full of creativity, good vibes and goodies, keep reading for all the crafty details.
We are excited to partner with love, Pittsburgh to help stock our goodie bags.
The Ace is crafting a Galentine’s cocktail for purchase at the event, or anything else you would like to sip on available at our dedicated bar as we party in their ballroom. We should also mention the Ace’s lobby turns into a party right after you are done crafting, the DJ starts at 9pm just downstairs for those not ready to call it a night.
How it works:
We are pulling out all the stops for this special ladies craft night, and bringing several awesome projects for you to get your craft on.
Treat yo’ self with a DIY Sugar Scrub, get deep and dreamy as you paint Watercolor Quotes and bond with your besties with Leather Friendship Charms. AND everyone who comes takes home all of their projects and a bag of more love-worthy goodies.
DIY Sugar Scrub
We’ve got the recipe for soft pampered hands, and it starts with this luxurious scrub. Combine sugar, sweet almond oil, and your favorite fragrance to concoct your new favorite ritual.
Unwind and let the colors flow. With simple strokes, you will be painting beautiful washes onto squares of watercolor paper. Then stamp or letter your favorite quote, word or mantra on top.
Leather Friendship Charms
Create friendship charms for 2 or more BFFs using metallic leathers and graphic stickers. These charms are pretty on bags, key rings, and necklaces.
NEW: Girl Power Cards
We are partnering with the Women and Girls Foundation of Pittsburgh and setting up a card writing station where you can write words of encouragement and empowerment to women of the WFG FEMISPHERE program, who need to hear it the most. With FEMISPHERE, WGF is challenging Pittsburgh to become an ecosystem where women and girls thrive. Did you know that single mothers and their children make up 77% of households living in poverty in Pittsburgh? WGF is working with community services, advocates, and local leaders to ensure women can access all the resources and services they and their families need to thrive. And, Pop Craft is donating a portion of ticket sales for this event to the WGF.
