Alcomar is proud to announce The Art of Making — a summertime DIY series featuring artists whose work decorates the restaurant. Local designers, chefs, and makers will teach guests how to create personalized works of art and offer hands-on, individual instruction throughout the creative process — all while sipping a Mexican cocktail.

The first installment of the three-part series spotlights local artist, Emily Dunn — owner of BOHO GRIT. Her carefully-constructed crystal planters adorn Alcomar's tables, and bring a beautiful, organic design element to the restaurant's breezy atmosphere.

Each ticket is $35 and includes a hand-made crystal planter, materials for planting, a live succulent, instructions on plant care and Palomas made with Azuñia Tequila prepared by Alcomar's award-winning bar team.

Why Emily is teaching:

Plants and stones are taken for granted in our everyday life, and learning about their benefits puts a new spin on something that is accessible to a lot of people. Learning to plant connects us with the plants and gives us a better understanding of how we can make them thrive.


Everyone will get to choose their planter with a unique stone and learn how to plant a succulent. The meaning of the stones will be reviewed as well as plant care and ideal placement in the home for different types of plants.
