Holiday Mancraft is returning for it’s second year in a bigger venue and featuring even more talented craftsmen. Both ladies and gents are invited to stop by the Rackhouse Pub in the Stranahan’s Whiskey building on Friday December 7 to find holiday gifts ranging from screenprint and letterpress prints to soap and plush monsters, all crafted by local guys in a setting just for them.
Visit this no frills event to find a gift that will help your significant other discover that not all cool stuff requires power tools to assemble. This group of creative men (and a couple husband/wife teams) have gathered to show you what they are made of – and what they make: Vital Industries, Swear Jar, Rob Mack, Azure Furniture, A Monster to Love, R Design, Alex Watson Pottery, Ink Lounge, The Bungaloo, Olde Crone’s Bewitching soap, Genghis Kern, Crawl Space, John Fellows, Two Little Fruits and Bottlehood.
While you’re there you can also learn the fine craft of whiskey with a tour of Stranahan’s distillery. Tours take place at 3pm and 5pm, but reservations are highly recommended, especially on Friday nights. Make yours or find out more at www.stranahans.com
If you still haven’t gotten your creative fix after finding that perfect gift at Holiday Mancraft, you can also hop on the First Friday Shuttle Coach and visit the galleries along Santa Fe Arts District to make an evening of art. The Rackhouse Pub is a co-sponsor of the free shuttle and a stop on the continuous 20-minute loop from 5:30-9:30pm.
