FFT Holiday Edition feat. Ginger Williams Cook
Mantle is honored to host the multi-talented Ginger Williams Cook for our holiday version of Startup Happy Hour. The Fondren-based artist is the wife to Justin and Mom to Eloise and Oliver and has an awesome little art studio located just down the street from Mantle. In addition, you may recognize Ginger as one of our featured artists who graces the walls of our own little wonderland.
Ginger will be meeting folks in the Mantle Living Room for Happy Hour on Thursday prior to her ornament painting workshop that same night. Mantle will be open to meet Ginger and peruse some of her art and gifts for the holiday season. As always, we will have beer and pops for those visiting Mantle during Startup Happy Hour. If you are interested in starting up a new hobby, you can join in Ginger's ornament workshop for $60 which starts following the meet and greet at 6:30pm Thursday night.
The workshop will showcase how to create a vintage style clothespin ornament with direction and inspiration from Ginger. Following the demonstration, participants can choose from a seemingly endless supply of felt, glitter, pipe cleaners, faux fur, and specialty miniatures to create their own keepsake to be cherished for years to come.
Mantle will be open for Happy Hour starting at 4pm on Thursday. Ginger will be around prior to the workshop for a meet and greet around 530pm. Tickets for the 6:30pm workshop can be purchased here, which include a signature holiday cocktail and light hors d'oeuvres as we welcome the Christmas season with great conversation and crafts.
