Main Street gets cray With the official opening of HANDMAKERY on First Friday, Sept. 1 from 4 to 8 p.m., downtown Carbondale becomes even more artsy and crafty. At a sneak peek preview on Aug. 24, folks were treated to a taste of what is to come as kids got to work on making owl-feathered necklaces. Ami Maes, former middle school art teacher starting in 1999, has always believed that every child is an artist. Adorned with shelves of brand new arts and crafts supplies, the new studio at 449 Main (309-7686 / hello@handmakery.com) gives kids that opportunity to explore. Workshops officially begin the week of Sept. 5 for kids. Maes plans to eventually branch out to include workshops and specialty nights for adults.
