“Summer Fun” Cookie & Jewelry Workshop

I was super excited when the ladies of Lost Wax Studio invited me to join in on a fun, summery workshop hosted by Adrienne of A.R.C. Fine Art gallery in Fairfield, CT.

In celebration of the end of the school year as well as an opening she was hosting that evening, Adrienne thought it would  fun to gather some of her children’s friends for a creative after school get together.

Here are some photos from a beautiful, creative summer afternoon!

The workshop began with a bracelet making workshop led by the ladies of Lost Wax- I had the best time taking this workshop myself even though it was hard to decide on bead color since they have so many beautiful ones!

Yay! We made these!

Chillin on the rope swing

In between workshops, the girls enjoyed the Adrienne’s beautiful yard, as well as the perfect weather, on a rope swing (I need one of these stat!)

Mixed icing colors on fish

…and loved to see a few icing “risk takers” mix their colors on the cookie to make a new shade! (Note: Candy bubble placement)

...and before we knew if the fish were iced and eaten!

I might be too young to ice cookies but I'm old enough to know something yum when I see it!
