Design & Wine. At this time of year we are embellishing our homes, our trees, and our gifts. Why not spend two hours embellishing something for you? At this month's Design and Wine event at ArtSpace, enjoy a delicious glass of pinot noir while embellishing a keepsake journal. Perhaps you will choose to give this handy work as a gift or perhaps you keep it for those New Year’s resolutions you know are just around the corner! The guest artist leading the project will be Eileen Hull. Cost is $30 and includes all supplies and two glasses of wine. Registration and advance payment required, click here. This Tuesday, Dec. 17, 7-9 p.m. ArtSpace Herndon, 750 Center St.
