Vigilant Brewing opened in July about 3 minutes from my house in Bristol. I partnered with Vigilant to run a paint and flight night- each ticket included a flight of ice cold beer. Thank you to all my friends and family who came to support and the new people I got to meet! You all reminded me how much fun this job is!
Yesterday was a huge success and everyone created a beautiful painting in their own unique style! We enjoyed a nice charcuterie board with a glass of Great White from Newport Vineyards.
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and I thought it would be a great time to test out my concept for a "Sip and Shibori" event. Shibori is a Japanese style of tie dye using deep blue or indigo dye. There are various patterns and designs you can make. I tried the ring design and the triangle accordion fold. This would be a great event idea for outside at a winery/brewery!
Early April I was given the opportunity to donate my time for a Paint and Punch event for Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Providence. We painted a spring scene with a robin's egg nest. It was so nice to see all the different styles and color combinations that the kids and their mentors came up with. Everyone was so polite and it was a pleasure working with them!
