The First Annual Simmons Island Beach Party

On September 22 & 23rd, the Kenosha Creative Space hosted the First Simmons Island Beach Party. It was an event to remember the day was perfect, and the turnout was fabulous.

CCR was invited to set up a papermaking and printmaking pop-up workshop.  

Check out some pics from the event. 
YES!, Making paper.

A family activity

Concentration and focus yield the perfect sheet.

Nothing spells relief like printmaking

  2. It is so good to know about the first annual Simmons Island beach party. I am glad that it was successful. At some beachside event space Chicago we attended such an event in the last month and that too was extremely enjoyable.
