Creating is critical in healing and justice.

Making crafts settles our bodies and minds, so we can listen and talk. Sharing stories over a beading project feels more like friendly chatter instead of a high-stakes, “tell your story” moment in a formal setting sure to evoke stress.

When we can sit and know that we have five hundred more beads to string to make our creation, the stories feel comforting and help pass the time.

When you have three hours to create something, fear subsides and memories surface. You don’t even have to tell your story in chronological order. You can tell snippets of memories that surface and are released.

In the act of making things, we also find value in ourselves. We find ourselves admiring our own creativity and skills that maybe we had forgotten or never knew we had.

We become proud of what we have made and delight in its beauty.

If something we make feels beautiful, there is the possibility of beauty within the creator in us, the part of us that creates. There is even a bit of beauty we know we have now left in this world. If we have the skill to create and be healing agents, we don’t have to wait for someone else to step in and do the healing work for us.

We can be together and become the healing agents we have been longing for. While crafting doesn’t replace the need for mental health professionals, it can be a great partner and remind us of our agency in the healing work.

Creating is hopeful and practical, and maybe even brings in some income. Because it is time consuming and most of the work is mundane or repetitive, it can engage people of all ages and unite generations and families. Arts and crafts don’t produce unattainable artwork that only a few individuals can achieve. In Arts and Crafts we are just good hosts providing the needed tools and space to one another so creations can be made.

In arts and crafts, we are creators who participate in the healing process.
We don’t have to be heroic problem solvers or control an uncontrollable environment.

We get to create with old and new friends.

The work of revolutionary crafting is respectful, it is historical, it is good. It is divine. It is that kind of work that balances the space between pragmatic and poetic.

Covid Policies | Ephemera Paducah

AUGUST 11, 2021
COVID-19 POLICIES

On August 8 – 10, McCracken County, Kentucky, Paducah, Kentucky, and the Commonwealth of Kentucky issued warnings and requirements for masking in groups inside. Kentucky has specifically mandated that all schools — attendees, personnel, teachers, etc. — require masks in response to the highly contagious COVID-19 delta variant and recent U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.

As McCracken County is “in the red zone” and our students travel from all over the United States, starting today, August 11, 2021, and until further notice, masks will be required for workshops and shopping at Ephemera Paducah. (A mask is defined as an N-95 paper mask or cloth mask worn over the nose and mouth. Plastic face shields are not considered masks and can only be worn if accompanied by a cloth or paper mask.)

Earlier this year we offered a limited timeframe to request refunds for people who feel restricted by Covid-19 precautions. We have been clear that we will follow CDC and State guidelines regarding the safety of our customers, students, teachers, and staff throughout the Pandemic. Out of fairness to our 2021 Traveling Instructors who have been waiting a long time to teach, that offer is no longer available. Your option is to sell your seat to someone else should the current policy not work for you. Contact Kristin (270-443-0003) to see if there is a waitlist for your class.

Teachers will use our overhead projections system for demonstrations and can be far enough back to speak without a mask for demonstrations if they desire. When working one-on-one with students, masks will be required. We will continue to sanitize common areas, cleanse common supplies, eat lunch outside when possible, as well as offer up outside workspaces on the patio if desired.

Anyone who teaches at Ephemera Paducah as well as our staff is vaccinated.

I know this sucks.

It sucks as a business owner striving to do the right thing knowing that this will be seen as “political” rather than precautionary by some.

It stinks that we are reminded of this horrible virus as we make art and gather together albeit warily.

However, it keeps me up at night that my granddaughters are too young to be vaccinated and I could bring the virus to them. I would never forgive myself.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Wash your hands.

Thank you for your respectful compliance.

Kristin R. Williams, owner

SOOOOOOOOOOO excited about the "Watercolor Doodling" class. Haven't been to Paducah in over two years, & I've been having withdrawal. Thanks for helping me get registered. See you in mid-June.
It's July 🤪 Trying to be patient, lol!!!
Thanks for my Sussie!
Thank you so much for my sussie!!! It's perfect and I love each and every piece!!!
Thank you for reminding us you are there. Just trying to create a little something every day!!
Can’t wait to see those.
I am unfortunately not going to be able to attend the Collage Your Pup class this Saturday. I asked for the day off, got scheduled to work anyway and can not find anyone who will take my shift or even trade shifts with me. I have paid in full for the class, so if you're even thinking about taking it, you can buy my seat. Need to do it ASAP as Kristen needs photos of the pets you want to collage like now. Please contact me ASAP if you'd like my spot. Thanks.
I am so pleased to find this page. Looks like lots of great classes happening!
OMG! I got my stuff already from the Facebook sale. I know what I'll be doing this weekend! Thanks! #dropclothsampler
Can't wait to visit Ephemera in Paducah and claim my 40% off treat for Fall Quilt Week.
I have been wanting to try this! Great minds think alike :)
Such a FUN class with Carleen Johns!! Thank you Ephemera!
