Q. What is Color Me Calm?
A. This group’s focus is on coloring. Not only the social aspect but the meditation aspect: it reduces stress, it gives you that sense of accomplishment, and coloring is simple but the results are grand; it takes you away for a few minutes of escape from the adult responsibilities that we all have to deal with. It’s the choice distraction! You can join Color Me Calm here.
Q. What is Beyond the Book?
A. This is a relaxed, social group that gets together to enjoy some conversation about the latest book and a libation at Craft + Cork. We’ll pick a book each month and have discussion questions to begin each meeting if we need them. You can join Beyond the Book here.
Q. Do you participate in fundraising events?
A. Projects or paintings at Craft + Cork are a great way to raise money for your organization and have fun too! Minimum of 15 guests. Prices vary depending on the project you select from our gallery or our consultant can meet with you to design a custom project or painting for your event, based on your event theme, charity, company logo, photograph, or inspiration of your choice.
Fundraisers are available 7 days a week 10am-9pm. Call for availability 317.300.1277.
Set your own price. Anything over the project cost is 100% profit for your organization. For example, a canvas painting project is typically priced at $35 per person; if your event tickets are priced at $55 per person, then the profit for your event would be $20 per person/ticket. For 15 guests that would be $300 raised for your cause while having fun! Promote on your website, newsletter, etc. and we will partner by posting the event on the Craft + Cork calendar as well; noting if the event is open to the public.
A deposit of $150 is required to reserve your date.
Craft + Cork will provide an artist to host your fundraising event, along with all the materials needs to execute your selected project (easels, canvas, brushes, paint, aprons, etc.).
Craft + Cork will issue a check for your fundraiser proceeds within a month of the executed event date. Checks are issued to the official charity name and mailed to the event organizer.
