April Showers: Spring Sip & Shop

April 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm-5:00 pm

april showers spring sip and shop

Join us for April Showers: Spring Sip and Shop — our first annual pop-up shopping event — on April 27. 8 Chains North and ARTisans of Loudoun have teamed up to host a fun Spring-themed, one-day event showcasing many amazing and talented local artisans and crafters.

As April showers turn to May flowers, it’s time to spruce up your home and wardrobe. Shopping handmade and local is a great way to buy new and unique items and support your local community.

Plus, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Find something special for the moms in your life.The best part is you can enjoy fantastic handcrafted 8 Chains North Winery wine while you shop!

In addition to shopping, we are offering two—yes two—awesome workshops upstairs at the winery. Create a beautiful succulent wine bottle planter. Or create your own rustic wood planter box or pallet sign. You can even take both!

Plan your visit.

Sip & Plant

Succulents are all the rage right now. Beautiful and low maintenance, they make a stunning display in any number of planters. For this Sip & Succulents Workshop, you’ll plant a variety of succulents in a wine bottle! Plants, soil, decorative stones, and cut wine bottle are provided. The class is taught by Laura Walker from Buttercups Floral Design and Loudoun County Farms, a family farm in Waterford, Va. They specialize in eco-friendly succulents, seasonal centerpieces, and bouquets for special events.

One session: 1:00 pm.

Sip & Craft

Grab your friends and create a rustic planter box or a pallet sign with a floral wreath. The Wine & Woodcrafts Workshop is led by The Aviary Girls. Both projects are handmade (by The Aviary Girls) from solid wood. They design, cut, and teach you to properly use vinyl stencils to letter your board. You’ll receive step-by-step instructions and demonstrations during the workshop. They’ll have plenty of paint colors, finishes, and seasonal florals on hand. Get ready to take home a fresh, bright, Spring decor piece!
