Crafting gets a makeover this summer with the opening of Corks ‘n Crafts at Downtown Summerlin (1875 Festival Plaza Drive, Suite 100). From wood crafting, seasonal décor, jewelry making, string art, fabric dying, and décor boards; Corks ‘n Crafts offers something for everyone in an upscale, industrial workshop environment with a scrumptious menu, craft beers, and fine wine.
This modern day DIY craft and sip studio is open Monday – Saturday 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Future crafters can also book online at www.corksncrafts.com.
Corks ‘n Crafts is set to host a weekend of grand opening activities on July 14 and 15 noon-4 p.m. in celebration of the Downtown Summerlin opening. In addition to make and take crafts throughout the day, guests can enjoy refreshments, treats, tours of the space, children’s activities, raffles, and more.
Corks ‘n Crafts offers a variety of all-ages options for crafting geniuses and novices alike, including drop-in crafting, guided classes, and master classes. Guests over 21 years of age can enjoy a selection of craft beers and hand-selected wines to turn their crafting adventure into a fun create and sip experience perfect for a girl’s night out or first date. Corks ‘n Crafts also offers private parties and experiences for all crafting levels and are great for family and team building events. All classes and activities are led by an experienced “craft-tender” and all crafting levels are welcome to participate.
“Loving DIY crafts since I was a little girl, I wanted to combine crafting with a fun environment with great wine and food for the ultimate creative, fun, and social experience,” said owner Alainah Paul. “We want to create memories not only for our guests, but with our guests.”
Unlike other create and sip concepts, Corks ‘n Crafts designed their first and flagship location with an upscale experience in mind. Not only can guests create within their walls, they can enjoy an upscale experience featuring Veuve Clicquot bubbles, wines by the bottle or glass, craft cocktails, sangria, and locally brewed craft beer. Corks ‘n Crafts also offers bottomless mimosas on Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-3 p.m. for $22 per person (crafts not included). If crafting works up an appetite, guests can indulge in a variety of treats and snacks including gourmet popcorns from Popped and snacks from Chef Amanda Hogan including Grilled Summer Corn & Tomato Relish, Spicy Pickled Shrimp, Artichoke & Parmesan Tapenade, and a variety of charcuterie, cheese, and antipasto plates.
Registration for classes in June and July is available now online at www.corksncrafts.com. Priced starting at $30, crafters can choose from Shibori Indigo-Dyed Napkins, Vegas Strong String Art Project, Grill Master Utensil Holder, Beer Caddy, Herb Garden Board, Serving Tray, and more.
