CRAFT ART ADVENTURE
Adventures in Bringing Creative Ideas to Life
Whether you’re an experienced craftsperson on the Martha Stewart level, or simply one who appreciates the handiwork of those who create beauty, here are some ideas for a day filled with creative endeavors in the Park City-Summit County community, including suggestions for spots with terrific artisan food.
Gird up for a full day of inspiration at Five5eeds Eatery, a breakfast and lunch restaurant that takes pride in offering great coffee with food that is grounded in nourishment and flavor. Proprietors Andrew and Tiffany Percy hail from Melbourne, Australia and serve up dishes crafted from local, seasonal produce, with a nod to the famed Aussie foodie culture. All meals are made from scratch, and breakfast – the most important meal of the day – is served all day..
Don’t Miss: The Short Rib Benedict - slow cooked beef short rib, poached egg, toast, rich apple cider hollandaise, and tart granny smith apple slices.
CREATE YOUR OWN MASTERPIECE
Roll up your sleeves and tap into your inner-artisan. Join a creative session at Paint Mixer or Paint Fusion PC to create your own work of art. Try painting on canvas or ceramics or fashioning fused glass art. Choose from ceramic or glass ornaments, holiday-themed plates or platters, mugs, custom ceramic boxes, animals, picture frames, and more. These make terrific gifts and mementos.

Dinner at The Yard
Located just a block from Kimball Art Center, two restaurants share space in an old lumber yard building, aptly christened “The Yard”. Boneyard serves classic favorites from a wood-fired charcoal grill alongside 90 beers and craft cocktails with the day’s sports on large-screen TVs, while Wine Dive offers small plates, pizzas, and charcuteries with an expansive wine collection including 16 varieties on tap.
