Out and About WRAL.com

– Looking to shake things up with your honey, girl gang, or learn a new skill on your own? Well look no further cause Worthy Joy Co. got you covered!

Lauren Stevens started her unique creative studio business two years ago (February 2020) and hasn’t looked back. She is proud to support local creators and creators in the Triangle region, while engaging the community. Her events range from romantic wine dinners to cooking classes and themed parties (my husband and I did it all and attended her Gatsby costume mixology class for Halloween) that don’t disappoint. I can also confidently say that you are guaranteed to meet lovely, kind and interesting people when you attend a Joy Worthy event – which is perfect for a newcomer like me. She also teaches painting classes and develops her children’s programs (as a mother herself!).

You can also work with Lauren to plan amazing private parties, as she has phenomenal relationships with many resources in the Raleigh area. Connecting and creating space to foster joy is something we can all support (especially after the past two years)! Prices for its events range from $50 to $150 and usually include food and drink, which let’s face it, about how much you’d spend in Glenwood South these days.

Joy Worthy Co’s offerings are expanding to include free community events to make joy truly accessible to everyone.
