Christmas Cards

November 11 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

$30

The custom of sending Christmas cards was started in the United Kingdom in 1843 by Sir Henry Cole. He was a senior civil servant (Government worker) who had helped set-up the new ‘Public Record Office’ (now called the Post Office), where he was an Assistant Keeper, and wondered how it could be used more by ordinary people. Sir Henry had the idea of Christmas Cards with his friend John Horsley, who was an artist. They designed the first card and sold them for 1 shilling each.

Join artist, Jency Latta, to create  very special hand water-colored Christmas cards for someone special. Consider framing your creation to display each holiday season. Reservations are required. Click here for reservations.
