Daily Walk-In Crafts
We have the space and supplies available for walk-ins during open hours, or take your art kit to go. If you’d like a kit delivered to your doorstep (Ames only), order online at Midwestix.com and we will be there in a day or two. Daily and Art-2-Go Craft offerings will change periodically. The following crafts are open to all ages if accompanied by an adult.
Hours are Monday - Friday from 2-9pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm through November 20
Wood Word Cutouts
Choose a wood cutout of a cursive word that is most meaningful to you. Maybe “home” and “family” connects with you, or “hello” and “coffee” might be more your jam. Personalize yours with acrylic paint and choose ribbon or colored string to make a hanger. $6/$7 to go/not available for delivery
Knotted Wall Tapestry Kit
Start with a 5” brass ring and use various knotting techniques to create a boho wall piece. Kits combine luxe yarn in various widths with color palettes that include cream with either gold, pink or mocha.
Hand-stitch a set of three scrunchies! Choose two textiles and we will include a red and gold fabric to round out your trio. Includes elastic and a mini sewing kit so you can stitch with us or when you need a relaxing break from the day. It’s never a bad hair day with a scrunchie!
Clay Owls Kit
Whoooo doesn’t love owls? Make a set of small owl figurines in clay by following our tutorial. We will fire them in the kiln and have them ready for you to pick up with a to-go paint kit in about a week. Get a set of three colors and a brush in either earth tones (gold, tan and cream) or pop brights (orange, teal and pink).
Want to take your Paint Your Own Pottery to go? Choose your glaze palette and we will include black and white for mixing. Return it for firing and it will be ready for final pick up in a week. For delivery in Ames a selection of bisque is online at midwestix.com. Drop in to see all available designs.
