Open Hearts and Craft Beers

Once upon a time, I had the pleasure of working with some of the best teachers in Asheville. I will spare you the long backstory (there are beers to be sipped). What I will tell you is that the school where we all worked closed shockingly and abruptly. The children we taught were left without a school. We, teachers, were left without our jobs and away from the children we loved so very much. Fast forward to now, 3 months later, and two of my former colleagues are in the beginning stages of opening up Open Hearts Village, a holistic and heart centered preschool, here in Asheville. There is no doubt that this school will make a huge and wonderful impact on the children of Asheville and on everyone involved. Ok, so what’s all this have to do with beer? We’re getting there.

Studio A Invites You To Grand Opening

Studio A Invites You To Grand Opening Imagine being surrounded only by things that are hand-made, created with love and inspired by spirit. Studio A is one such place where the vibrant artist, Andrea Kulish creates handmade lamps, pysanky eggs, mixed media art as well as silkscreened t-shirts. She invites you to Studio A Grand Opening: two days of celebration, creativity and live demos. Andrea creates the shades for her handmade lamps using an array of unique handmade paper, photographs as well as fabrics. She welcomes interior designers, businesses as well as individuals with a specific idea for interior decor to consult with her for custom-made lamps. For the lamp bases, Andrea collaborates with Asheville’s own metal artists Tina Councell of Iron Maiden Studios and Mark Schieferstein of Skrapmonkey turning each piece truly artisan-made. As for her inspiration, she says, “After making hundreds of colorful handmade lanterns for the annual lantern parade around Jamaica Pond in Massachusetts for two years in a row, I wanted to make something that would enable me to play with color and light and also be more permanent than lanterns.” She names her lamps too. For example, she created a pair of lamps inspired by the mother humpback whale and her calf, Salt and Zelle, which adds a …
