Today only, you can be a muse for your loved ones to get creative and learn something new this holiday season with a special promo-code for 25 percent off all 3rd Ward offerings site-wide.
Your roommate got a fancy new DSLR camera for her birthday and only shoots on auto settings (the horror!) — expose her to the possibilities with a digital camera intro course. Your brother’s IKEA coffee table has been wobbling precariously on three legs and a stack of old magazines for the better part of a decade — help him get handy with an intro to woodworking class. Your boyfriend is a bike-aholic — send him to a support group of likeminded enthusiasts while building a badass bike light.
For the artists and makers and lifetime learners in your life who need a bit of a push, a Basic Membership is a good way to get started at 3rd Ward. Basic members get discounts on classes, events, lectures and workshops and get access to members only programming and other perks. Gift certificates are a great idea for anyone on your list as 3rd Ward has classes for everybody that’s interested in learning something new or exercising latent artistic energy.
