My KIND of Holiday Happy Hour (CT)

Tuesday, December 12th at 6:00pm

Shakedown Street Eats at 227 Greenwood Ave, Bethel, CT 06801

Join us at the newly opened Shakedown Street Eats to create your own unique Bead String! This is a family-friendly event in support of Ben’s Bells. You will be able to select from a variety of bead shapes and then decorate them to create a piece that will look great in your home or as a gift. As a special added bonus, each participant will receive a complimentary drink from our friends at Shakedown!


How It Will Work

1. Attendees will select 5 clay beads from a large variety provided by Ben’s Bells. This is the time to be creative! Each bead can be designed to your liking.

2. Once your pieces are finished, Ben’s Bells will bring them back to the studio to be fired in the kiln and assembled with a bell.

3. You will be able to pick up your fully assembled ornament during studio hours one week later. 

Participants will also have the opportunity to glaze (paint) community Kindness Coins. Kindness Coins are an important tool for practicing kindness. Givers are encouraged to recognize kind acts around them, and to present a Kindness Coin to those who demonstrate kindness. That person is then encouraged to pass it on to another person, and so on, and so on. Research shows that recognizing kindness in others increases a person’s happiness and satisfaction. Kindness Coins are a great way to acknowledge the kindness around us and practice our kindness skills!
