COLUMBIA, PA: It’s creative, it’s fun, and it’s one-of-a-kind! It’s called functional art and you can design your very own!

On Thursday, March 22, from 7 to 9 p.m., come with your friends to the National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, PA, for a “Clocktail Party”! Create a clock while you enjoy a cocktail. Whether it’s a record album or cover, a tin sign or a wooden shape, with art supplies participants will have all they need to make a clock that expresses what they like. Staff from the Museum will be on hand to guide participants through the clock-making process. A quartz movement added to the clock will allow it to be “functional art” either hung in your home or given as a gift.

Throughout the evening, wine, beer, and a signature clocktail will be served along with light hors d’oeuvres. The event cost of $30 will include one free drink with additional drinks available for purchase. Clocktails is an adults-only event and attendees must be 21 or over.

“Every summer the Museum has a popular program for children called “Make-and-Take Time,” in which young ones make their own clocks. Coupled with this fun event and spawned from the fun adults have been enjoying during area paint nights, the Museum initiated the “Clocktail Party” that allows for clocks and cocktails all in one!” explains Marketing and Special Events Coordinator Kim Craven.

Preregistration for Clocktail Party is required by calling 717.684.8261, ext. 211 or emailing giftshop@nawcc.org.
