Whether you are looking to learn something new or add a unique experience to your date night, attending a NewBo City Market class is a great way to support small businesses and connect with local entrepreneurs.
NewBo City Market offers a multitude of classes throughout the year, on Fridays and Saturdays. These classes feature local instructors, most of which are NewBo City Market Shopkeepers and Guest Vendors.
Katie Eichenberger, the artist behind Eichenpaint, began teaching classes recently, after two years of being a guest vendor at the Market.
"NewBo’s teaching space is the ideal set up for me and my students," she said. "Plenty of room for supplies, large sinks and tables, excellent instructor’s and student space. Plus, students can grab a cold beer at the NewBo bar, a hot coffee at Roasters, or something to eat while they paint. It’s a place that easily lends itself to socializing and fun."
Katie teaches regular painting classes and many of her students return time and time again, and so does she.
"I keep coming back because I feel at home at NewBo," she said. "The people that work at there are kind, flexible, and have the same goal: to help local creatives flourish."
From painting to cooking, tie-dying and crafting, classes at the Market are made to teach and entertain students of all ages and backgrounds.
When you attend a Market event, like one of these weekly classes, you are supporting NewBo City Market's mission as a nonprofit business incubator, which support local entrepreneurs as they start and grow their small businesses.
