Dear Friends

We are thrilled to invite you to join a workshop Mending & Tasting with OCD Chocolat and  Work in Progress, at the fabulous new OCD Chocolate at 63 E. 4th Street in the East Village on November 16th from 6:30 – 9:30 pm. A special tasting of Sebastian Brecht’s hand-made, artisanal chocolates will fuel our creations, along with wine and refreshments. Tickets are $60 per person. This is a limited space workshop, so please contact me if you would like to attend or give a seat as a gift at  9176916968.

Works in Progress by Marie Christine Katz is an interactive workshop that breathes new life into cast aside, everyday items. Each participant will bring a piece of clothing, jewelry, token, etc. in some state of disrepair. Instead of simply mending, we will re-imagine and recreate, transforming your once overlooked object into a one-of-a-kind treasure. In an increasingly disposable society, Works in Progress challenges us to look at belongings through a fresh lens, opting to create rather than discard.

Sebastian Brecht’s art is Chocolate. He has been perfecting his creations for years before opening his shop earlier this year. His chocolates run the spectrum from junky to genteel, from elemental to ingenious, with good taste being the constant. Because art was always important in his life, he also has rotating exhibits on his chocolate shop wall, and includes a small reproduction of the current show in his chocolate boxes.

Note that I can be commissioned to repair & transform your dameged items as well as creat individualised sculptural elements based on my ongoing projects. A wonderful gift to yourself and loved ones. More can be seen in Moments as well as Work in Progress
