Holiday Party + Pop Up

  • Breather 954 W Washington Blvd Chicago, IL, 60607 USA (map)
Saturate_Holiday Party

We are partnering up with some amazing talent to bring you the best winter welcome this season. Grab some friends, put on your tackiest sweater and join us for an evening of making, shopping, sippin', and snackin' at Breather's newest West Loop location.

What will we be making? 
Well, we want you to be prepared for the holidays and what better way then learning all the tips and tricks for the best looking presents. Joslyn Villalpando of J.Villa Workshop will show you how to make pom-poms and tassels out of assorted yarn and string so that your gifts will stand out of the crowd. A gift can't go without a unique tag so Sam Handel will be teaching us some basic calligraphy skills so we can make our own. We'll also have a wrapping station with craft paper and string so you can use everything you made to wrap a gift! Feel free to bring gifts you've already bought or you can wrap anything you might buy at the party! We will have the pleasure of doing a little shopping with local vendors Neighborly, Amy Zwikel, Wolfechild, and Ashley Lin Pottery.

You can't have a party without some sippin' and snackin' so we'll have a hot cider bar, cocktails by Cocktail Courier, snacks, and Bang Bang Pie for you while you craft, peruse and shop the works. We know you'll be having a ton of fun so Olivia Ozner from Saturate Chicago will be setting up a festive photo booth to capture your holiday spirit! You might just be able to use your photo for this year's holiday cards.

We can't wait to see you and start this season off right! Make sure to purchase tickets on J.Villa Workshop's site. Purchase before November 20th and use code "holiday20" to get 20% off when you sign up 2 or more friends!
