Get Creative for the Holidays in Lexington!

Not only is Lexington, Massachusetts a city with a rich American history, but it is also a great place to be during the holiday season. If you’re desperately trying to find a perfect gift for that special someone, or if you’re looking to relax and get involved in some winter art classes, Lexington has just the thing you need.

Celebrating their 75th Anniversary, the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society offers plenty of opportunities for you to get creative this season.

Winter Classes & Workshops
Enrich your artistic talents by signing up for a class or workshop and teaming up with an expert art instructor! The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society offers classes and workshops for drawing, painting, silversmithing and jewelry. You will also have the opportunity to learn decorative painting, weaving, or wood carving. Specialized classes for teens include ceramics, weaving, and a polymer clay workshop. Remember: If you can’t find that perfect holiday gift, you can always make it!

Soup Bowls for Hunger
The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society is also sponsoring the 3rd Annual Soup Bowls for Hunger. Since September, the Ceramics Guild and Teen Pottery class have been working on handmade ceramic bowls, which are now on display and for sale at Nourish restaurant. These carefully crafted bowls are microwave and oven safe and on sale for $15. Best of all, 100% of the proceeds will go to Lexington Interfaith Food Pantry. On sale until December 31st or until supplies last, these very special holiday gifts serve a wonderful purpose. Nourish restaurant is located at 1727 Massachusetts Avenue in Lexington Center.

Holiday Marketplace
December 3rd marks the beginning of the Annual Holiday Marketplace, where thousands of handcrafted gifts will be available for purchase.
