Niche Modern Factory Sale
5 Hanna Lane, Beacon
Niche Modern has built its reputation on providing lighting structures that exemplify elegance and innovation in their hand-blown glass lighting fixtures. Often paired with playful color palettes and odd angles, each lighting fixture is an original creation, meaning no two fixtures are the same. From 12pm to 6pm on November 8, Niche invites the community to take part in their twice-yearly factory sale, with 50 to 80 percent off factory seconds, including handmade pendant lighting fixtures and the new tabletop collection. There will also be live glass-blowing demonstrations and tours of the factory. Nichemodern.com.
Holiday Wreathmaking Workshop
Deyo Hall, Historic Huguenot Street, New Paltz
Nothing dresses up the home with holiday spirit quite like a wreath. Traditional and sentimental with being treacly or garish (leave those ugly Christmas sweaters in mothballs, please!), wreaths decorate a home with beauty and warmth, providing an open invitation to the holiday season. On November 17 at 7pm, the New Paltz Garden Club hosts Bonnie Champion Finkenaur, who will guide participants in workshop on how to create a wreath that is original and suitable to the creator. Clippers, gloves, wire, and decorating materials will be needed; ribbon will be provided. (845) 255-6436; Newpaltzgardenclub.org
