New drop-in studio plans to bring more arts and crafts to Morehead

Caylee Lacey

A new all-ages drop-in art studio is coming to downtown Morehead. WhimziWorks aims to bring affordable arts and crafts activities to the area. They said their core values are local access to art, creative variety, and community crafting.

Shay Hammond is the owner of WhimziWorks. She said there will be a menu of arts and crafts options people can choose from when they visit. The list includes slime making, paper making, paint by numbers, pottery painting, and more.

“Those can rotate over time as the community’s interest changes and then also, we’ll have open studio where you can come down there, spend a couple hours, and use our materials to make whatever you want,” said Hammond.

Hammond added the studio will have accommodations for people with little ones in tow.

“I’m going to have Montessori activities for the little kids, so if like you’re an adult and you want to come do a thing, but your kid just wants to play, we’ve got space for that while you do your thing,” said Hammond.

Hammond said she hopes WhimziWorks will be a place for people of all ages to go, including children and families, couples on date nights, and friends who want to hang out.

WhimziWorks’ goal is to open in mid to late May. They are located at 147 East Main Street in Morehead.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story said WhimziWorks planned to open in the first week of May. Owners updated WMKY, telling us the opening date has been pushed back.
