We’ll have watercolor kits on hand and you can choose to make a complete set of four cards or mix and match your favorite emoji like suns, cacti, watermelons, rainbows, lemons, and more!

About the series:
Neighborhood Craft Night brings people together to enjoy each other's company, imbibe in good food and drinks, and make things with their hands. For each event, we partner with a different artist or creative from our community who presents a project related to their craft.
About the Artist: Jennie Lennick is a San Francisco based artist, entrepreneur, and teacher. As a child in the Midwest, Jennie became enamored with traditional domestic craft, learning to sew and embroider. Her first job as a teenager was in a bead shop in Minneapolis where she taught adults and children macramé and other beading techniques. In 2010, She moved to the Bay Area to attend the San Francisco Art Institute, where she studied painting. Inspired by the natural beauty of Northern California, Jennie launched Jenny Lemons (jennylemons.com), a collection of modern hand printed and painted women’s clothing and textiles. Jennie's work has been featured in publications like the San Francisco Chronicle, Brit + Co, and San Francisco Magazine. Her retail store in the Mission District of San Francisco is a community space where she facilitates DIY workshops, produces her products, and showcases the talents of other local artists.
