Creative Corner


October 10, 2019

Debra Callahan is tenacious. She is determined that Waitsburg adults and children are offered opportunities to be creative. Despite not having a permanent space in which to hold classes, or to offer retail purchases of craft supplies, she is moving ahead with her business, the Creative Corner. She is offering a series of classes to be held at the Fireside room at Waitsburg Town Hall until she can finalize a location. Her next class will be a pumpkin painting workshop for children aged 5-12 on Sunday, October 13th. All class supplies will be included for a cost of $10 per child.

A certified floral designer, fiber artist and a skilled scrapbook designer and greeting card creator, Callahan organized a successful summer season of the Market in the Park, Waitsburg’s first farmer’s market this year. A long-time Waitsburg resident and frequent Mayoral candidate, Callahan is open to suggestions about where she could locate a business which would include retail and classroom space.

Future plans for retail offerings include scrapbooking and card-making supplies, floral design and paint supplies, along with a gift shop offering her silk flower wreaths and bouquets. “Tupperware Bingo” follows the pumpkin painting class on her schedule and includes ten games with Tupperware prizes worth $20-$40 apiece, on Tuesday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m. The cost for that class is $20. Stay tuned for further updates on the Creative Corner and find the class listings on the Times Events Calendar.
