Looking to tap into your inner artist? You'll need the right supplies! Luckily, Willow Park and the surrounding area offers some fantastic craft stores.
Here are a few shops that offer everything from acrylic paint to colorful beads:
THE FRENCH KNOT
The French Knot has been a top needlepoint spot since 2006. Owners Paula Fehleison and Karen Williams provide a casual environment and are members of the National Needlepoint Association. They travel the country in search of the best canvases and threads, as well as the best pattern and how-to books.
The shop also offers an array of classes including Beyond Basketweave. It's for stitchers who want to enhance their projects by moving beyond the basketweave stitch. Sessions are frequently scheduled, and students create a nine-square sampler with twelve different stitches. The fun lasts for four hours, and lunch is included.
THE ARTFUL BEAD
Since opening in 2003, The Artful Bead has become a popular destination for beaders across Texas and Oklahoma. The inventory frequently changes, and shoppers find one-of-a-kind treasures at unbelievable prices. The beads come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and the friendly staff will happily answer any questions.
If you want to enhance your skills, The Artful Bead offers fun classes for all skill levels. Choices include Swirl Pendant, Beach Glass Necklace, and Turquoise Bugle Bracelet.
ASEL ART SUPPLY
Asel has been serving artists, designers, and students since 1951. The first location opened in Dallas, and today, there are nine stores throughout Texas. They all offer a friendly staff that can answer questions and provide real-world experience with the products. The shelves are full of high-quality items, and the varied selection includes canvases, stencils, and acrylic paints.
Asel also believes in supporting local art groups through competitions, workshops, and other such activities.
