The Eclectic Chic Boutique, arts and crafts gift shop located at 547 Bloomfield Ave in Downtown Montclair, has converted their Good Friday and Spring Break Camps to Virtual Craft Experiences. The Eclectic Chic Boutique works with over 30 local artists and makers from the NJ area. In addition to selling handmade crafts, they have a classroom space where artists teach craft classes to adults and children. Because of the recent outbreak situation, The Eclectic Chic Boutique has had to convert all their classes, including camps, to online classes. Artists can teach the classes from the safety of their homes or studios via Zoom.
For the Virtual Camps, each class is 40 min long and includes materials. The materials can be shipped, delivered, or held for curbside pickup. The camp classes are for age groups 6 to 10 and 10 to 14. Each class also includes a Virtual session with a Professional Artist via Zoom. Parents get 10% off for each sibling they sign up.
Camp sessions can be booked here:
