When we first heard that Freehand was coming to Chicago, we eagerly awaited their arrival. Now open, this hotel / hostel is located in a classic 1927 building in the heart of River North surrounded by a plethora of boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries. Recently we stopped in and took some time to poke around and explore. It took us no time at all to become completely smitten with the space - tiki poles, wood paneling, tapestries, vintage leather sofa, and shag throws - be still our hearts! If you can't find us, you now know where we'll be hiding out. We just might have to take up permanent residency is this gorgeous hotel! Freehand also houses the Broken Shaker - stop in for a delicious handcrafted cocktail (they have the cutest gold pineapple mugs!) and Café Integral - our new go-to River North Café.
Being inspired by the decor and vibe of Freehand, we decided it would be the perfect space to host our next Foxtail Gathering - a DIY Wall Hanging Workshop. Take a Sunday and join us for an afternoon of mingling with a creative community and constructing a modern wall hanging.
Learn more about the workshop and where to sign up below.
Oh, and don't forget to follow @freehandchicago!
In this two hour afternoon hands-on workshop, we will lead you in constructing your very own modern wall hanging (as previously featured on F+M here). The class comes with instruction, inspiration, and all you need to make your wall hanging. Complimentary coffee drink and pastry provided by Café Integral.
Get ready to be inspired and leave with a finished wall hanging. We hope to see you there!
