Our Jumbo Pegboard workshop is something we've been wanting to offer for quite some time. We love the flexibility of this modular shelving and storage system, and we love the way it looks! Students in this Woodworking class will create their own 4' x 2.5' birch plywood jumbo pegboard with three shelves.
Expect to learn:
- Planning a woodworking project (Measure twice, cut once!)
- Measuring and making straight cuts in boards and dowels
- Drilling 90 Degree holes without a Drill Press
- Sanding your project
- Tips on how to mount to your wall
Join soap maker Ashley Polkinghorn for this class all about making your own lotions!
In this class, you'll choose your favorite oils and blend them with water and an emulsifying wax and watch it become a lovely creamy lotion! You can add your favorite scents, and you'll go home with 100g of your customized lotion in a lovely bottle.
All supplies are provided but you're welcome to bring your own oils or essential oils if you'd like.
For the love of embroidery!
Newbies are welcome in this embroidery workshop. We’ll teach you how to transfer a pattern to fabric and several stitches that you might need to complete this adorable plant pattern however you’d like. We love this pattern as a pillow or stretched over a canvas as a wall hanging. You choose your colors and make the plants your own!
Join us at our Downtown Location for our popular Acrylic Abstract Painting class!
Students will learn the basics of acrylic paint, which is a great medium for both beginners and professional artists. It’s water soluble, easy to mix, and it can be applied to the canvas in so many interesting ways!
Together, we’ll learn:
Choosing colors: keeping it interesting while avoiding a “muddy” look
Mixing tints and shades: customizing your “from-the-bottle” paint to create more depth and interest to your painting
Applying paint: using a variety of brushes, palette knives, spray bottles, and paint mediums to achieve different textures and effects
Join us at our downtown location for this hands-on studio!
Cement is a super fun material to work with, but it can be a bit intimidating. And those huge 50 pound bags don’t make it seem easy! Students in this class will create a mold for a planter with a hole for drainage, cast cement, and de-mold their cement within the class time, and either plant their succulent or leave with the plant and supplies to do so at home.
Additional materials to make more planters may be available to purchase on the day of the event!
Learn the basics of macrame knotting while creating this beautiful wall hanging complete with brass hanging rod! These make a great addition to most rooms, adding softness and texture with their neutral and natural appeal.
All supplies and materials are included! Approximate size once completed is 15 by 40 inches.
Our Macrame Wall Hangings Workshop is now also available as a private event. Contact us to find out more! email@example.com
Join us at our downtown location for a beginners-welcome freestyle embroidery class!
Students will create their own pattern on fabric (we’ll give you a few suggestions and examples) and learn several embroidery stitches while creating your own beautiful mandala.
Embroidery is awesome. It is a lap-sized project perfect for hanging out on porch swings and picnic blankets. It helps us sit down and just relax for a while, doing something just for the love of it.
We need a reason to get together and stitch more, to find fun new patterns and push each other to finish old projects and to tackle new ones!
