CY boutique offer adult “summer camp” classes

This month me & mrs. jones, a working/teaching decorative painting studio and DIY boutique with locations in Cooper-Young and Germantown, is hosting a summer camp for grown-ups, a series of workshops taught by top local creatives.  Courses include upholstery essentials, floral design, pottery, candle making, modern calligraphy, painting a still life, and digital photography.

Thanks to the success of her weekly decorative painting workshops and in response to requests from her customers and students, owner Stephanie Jones decided to widen the scope of workshop offerings in this special “summer camp” series. Each session will be self-contained, and attendees may register for one or all. Jones invited some of her favorite local artisans to lead the courses, all with experience in teaching workshops in their particular area of expertise. Attendees of more than one session will receive special deals and giveaways.

Instructors include potter/artist Melissa Bridgman, Molly Kennedy of Good Golly Photography, fine artist Amy Hartelust, Kristin Wolter-Canfield of Everbloom Design, Mary Claire White of Falling Into Place, and Meriweather Adams of Handlettered with Love.

Campers may register online at, under the workshops tab.

Most sessions will be held at Jones’s Cooper-Young studio at 889 S. Cooper, a 1922 cottage that’s become a destination for DIY-ers and home décor enthusiasts since opening in 2012.

Regular class offerings include milk paint techniques, stenciling, metallics, and layered finishes with Chalk Paint decorative paint by Annie Sloan, for which me & mrs. jones is the exclusive regional retailer.

Jones is the author and principal photographer for Upstyle Your Furniture, an instructive how-to book, released in 2015. Her Germantown location, at 2135 Merchant’s Row #4, opened in late 2014.
