The Studio at Cattails


The Studio_Horiz_fNEW for 2014!! We’ve created a great way to spend some time with family, friends or just to treat yourself to a few hours of fun! Starved Rock Lodge has teamed up with its sister store, Cattails, to open “The Studio”.  This new space is designed with creativity in mind. “We are pleased to announce a new and exciting series of art-inspired programs for 2014,” said Edna Daugherty, Activities Director for Starved Rock Lodge, “Classes will be designed for anyone with a desire to create a work of art in a couple of hours.”

The Studio will be a great way to spend an afternoon or evening, paint a picture and try some wine. Daugherty said the workshops are perfect for mother/daughter get-togethers, girls’ night out, date nights, bridal or baby showers, small group events and corporate team building. Everything you need for the event will be included, even the wine!

Check our website for updates because we plan to expand this program and add more classes!
