Central Avenue Mercantile offers  workshops through their association with Making it Mine Workshop LLC. (MIM), who has been doing  workshops like this for several years.  When Central Avenue Mercantile opened in November of 2019, MIM jumped at the change to have a permanent location to work from. We hope you stop by to see us soon. 


What are workshops all about?

Workshops are about FUN! And we have lots of ways for you to do that. From painting things like signs or doormats to string art to pour paint, and more!

While most of the workshops we offer deal with painting and crafts, we also have other instructors that teach a variety of topics.  Do you have something to teach?

Here's what a typical sign painting workshop is like.

This is how it starts.  The board is put together and sanded and the laser cut shapes and letters are ready to go. You select the paint colors you want, grab  a brush, and have at it!  You paint it and glue it together. Just totally fun.
