1450 Ocean In Palisades Park Offers New Year Arts & Crafts Fun:

Have a resolution to learn something new this year?

Consider taking a look at what’s on offer at 1450 Ocean, Santa Monica’s center for arts, craft, and culture in the Camera Obscura building located at Palisades Park.

Activities include breaking a sweat in one of the movement classes or making something in a craft workshop.

Here’s a look at upcoming activities:

• Friday, Jan. 17 from 7-9 pm and Saturday, Jan. 18 from 11 am to 2 pm: Felt Hatmaking with Corina Haywood.

• Saturday, Jan. 18 from 2-5 pm: Crepe Paper Peonies with Ji Kim.

• Thursday, Jan. 23 from 7-9 pm: Sew a Yoga Mat Carrier or Market Bag with Sewcranky.

What’s coming up in February?

1450 Ocean’s first studio artist in residence, Luke Haynes, will be taking the month to work on his photo-realistic quilts and other fabric interventions.

On Saturdays on Feb. 8, 15, and 22 he’ll be leading community quilt making workshops with the final product to be given to a local charity.

Take part in design, cutting, piecing, quilting and more on the shared sewing machines, or bring your own projects and questions for Haynes.

Visit the fruits of his (and your) labors in a culminating quilt exhibit the evening of March 1. Learn more at lukehaynes.com.
