Tucked away in the Park Hill neighborhood is Share Denver, a project from Becky Hensley of the Denver Craft Ninjas and the Colorado Bead Company's Anne Davidson. The two craft-conscious women teamed up to open a studio space where work could be made and techniques taught by and for Denver's crafting community (learn more on the Show and Tell blog at westword.com), and it's been growing ever since — enough to now offer a full calendar of classes, including subjects as basic as Beading 101 and as varied as pinup hairstyling and beer tasting for beginners.
Now, they're going a step further by hosting the first Share Denver Fairfax Holiday Market, which promises just as much variety, from a pool of local artisans and staff teachers who are among the city's best crafters.
Expect handmade clothing, jewelry, baked goods, home decor, jams and jellies and much more at the market, running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at Share Denver, 2829 Fairfax Street. Admission is free; get information and check out the ongoing class roster at sharedenver.com.
Sun., Dec. 8, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2013
