No matter your age, it’s always fun to explore your creative side and take on new hobbies! Luckily, Huntsville has plenty of opportunities for you to tap into your imagination and learn a new hobby.

1. Fiber ArtWork

Don’t let this yarn store’s tucked-away location fool you — Fiber ArtWork is packed with personality. Classes are held every week, during which you can try your hand at crochet, felting, knitting, spinning, or weaving. All classes are free, your only expense being the required supplies. If you want to join, text Nina, the owner, at the number below and get started on your new hobby.

    2. Pinot’s Palette

    Huntsville has its very own Pinot’s Palette in Providence, where you can paint and sip with friends or enjoy some time alone. They also offer Family Days where guests 6 and up can paint with an adult. Classes are held daily, so be sure to visit their website, register for one (or more), and make room for some new artwork in your home.

    3. The Vessel

    The Vessel at Stovehouse contains vast opportunities for potters of all ages, no matter your level of experience. You might consider signing up for a “Try-It” Class, a private lesson for you and up to two friends, or even becoming a member. Every Friday from 10AM-12PM, The Vessel holds an unstructured open studio for kids 6 and under.

    4. Huntsville Botanical Garden
