Join us at the Sparkle Barn for a FUN night of sip and paint with Simply Said by Priscilla! $35 covers ALL the materials (paint, brushes, sap bucket, love) and you'll go home with a VINTAGE SAP BUCKET masterpiece you're proud of!
*** Seating is limited to 25 participants and this event is BYOB ***
Simply Said by Priscilla was born in 2005. In 2013 she was featured on WCAX Made in Vermont (Channel 3 News). She started doing sip and paints when the Shelburne Museum called to ask if she'd be interested in teaching a painting class on sap buckets. Priscilla sources her sap buckets from local Vermont sugaring folks that are either no longer tapping trees or have updated to the new sophisticated way of maple sugaring. All of the sap buckets are recycled and then up-cycled by creative enthusiasts like you!
*** Please note that we can only guarantee your seat and sap bucket by paying in advance - you can stop by the shop, give us a call or click the link below.
