Learn a new skill and create a masterpiece
Summer offers a welcome break from schoolwork, no matter how brief. It is a time to devote to leisurely activities you’ve been putting off in favor of actually passing your classes.
Make the most of this fleeting time by taking advantage of the countless art classes the Fargo area has to offer.
Your downtown hub for cute items by local makers, Unglued on Broadway gives you multiple opportunities to learn to make amazing crafts yourself.
From tassel earrings and hand lettering, to gilded geode coasters and glasses etched with your zodiac sign, there is something for everyone and every skill level.
Follow them on Facebook to keep up with all of their amazing crafting classes year-round.
Their stunning summer look-book of craft classes is set to release sometime in May.
Looking for an amazing crafting experience this summer?

It is no big surprise they always have way more people interested than they are able to accept, so the camp operates on a lottery system. You can put your name in anytime between 8 a.m. May 27 and 8 p.m. May 29.
If your name is drawn, you’ll have 24 hours to pay the camp fee of $330 to secure your place.
