Jenn Sherr

SoWa Vendor Spotlight: Jenn Sherr

Jenn Sherr is a Boston Designer who specializes in accessories.  Since the age of five Jenn has been involved in various art forms. Her mother is an artist and Jenn was exposed to Collage and Faux Painting at an early age. While residing in Miami, Jenn was sought out by designers to Faux paint projects and customize furniture using her special Collage techniques. Eventually Jenn moved back to Boston in 2000 and continued painting furniture for private clients. In the summer of 2001, Jenn exhibited her work in a Mother Daughter collaboration at a gallery on Martha's Vineyard.

In 2005 response from galleries and shop owners was exhilarating. Jenn personally visited every shop in the Boston area and her products are now included in over twenty shops nationwide including Miami and the Vineyard. It is not unusual for people to stop her on the street and comment on her jewelry or handbag!

Jenn also teaches ongoing workshops at her Studio and several non profit schools including Florida. Her work can be customized to fit any theme. If you have a favorite item it can be translated to a handbag, bracelet or a piece of furniture and wedding invitations are even often reproduced!

We look forward to having Jenn sharing her work with us this summer at SoWa!

 

When she’ll be here: May 15, June 5, July 10, June 19, July 31, August 7, August 14, September 18, September 25, October 30

Heist - December Thieves: ‘Be a Maker’ Series

The HEIST- BE A MAKER SERIES was designed to bring together local Artisans and Designers with those that ‘wanna be’.  And I know ‘cuz I’m a ‘wanna be’ who did the Dylanium Knits workshop this past winter and can gleefully attest that; 1. I had a blast. And, 2. Went home with a really cool hand knit - or should I say ‘arm knit’ - Infinity Scarf. And 3. Met some super cool peeps. Yup. You get to meet talented and cool people and head home with an awesome product and some artistic skills. Way too cool, my friends! But then, that’s the genius of December Thieves' Lana Bakarat, Best of Boston Proprietor, 2015!

So check this out …

The next Heist Workshop features one of SoWa’s über talented Artists and Designers Jenn Sherr, also known as Boston’s Decoupage Queen. While Jenn regularly teaches Decoupage Classes at her studio on Wareham Street, she and Heist Proprietor Extraordinaire, Ms. Barkarat, are pooling their immeasurable talents for a one-off Decoupage Workshop at Heists’ SoWa location on Sunday, April 24. You know the place and if, per chance you don’t, it’s at 524 Harrison Avenue, smack dab between the usual SoWa Food Truck and Farmers Market parking lots.

And speaking of which, you’ll be able to find Jenn most Sundays at the SoWa Open Market as well as Heist-December Thieves, which is open every Thursday-Sunday. 

Be there, be square.
