This Abstract Acrylic painting class helps beginners become more comfortable with paints, brushes, and making marks on a canvas. Each student will choose their own colors and create their one of a kind painting, following our loosely structured guidance on how to mix tints and create a color family, how to layer, and how to create those gorgeous atmospheric drips.
This workshop is now also available as a private event. Contact us to find out more! email@example.com
During this Friday evening workshop for adults, students will have the chance to work on a big canvas, allowing free movements and big brushes. These big canvases will be wall-ready expressions of your inner creative self!
Students will learn some basic color theory while mixing tints and shades. A variety of brushes and techniques will be introduced to create a painting layered with color, texture, drips, and dimension. Each student will leave with a completed painting on approximately 30"x40" canvas.
All supplies are included. We try to paint "clean", but bring an apron if you're worried about getting painty. Be prepared to take your big painting home with you, or leave it to dry and pick up later. Beginners are welcome and will be in good company.

Kombucha is a health-boosting fizzy beverage that is packed with probiotics and live cultures. Did you know that it's actually pretty easy to keep your own batch of "booch" brewing constantly, for a pennies on the dollar compared to the store-bought stuff? Plus, you can customize it to suit your own fruity, spicy, gingery, or mild tastes!
During this information workshop, students will learn the basics of starting your own batch of Kombucha at home. Students will receive their own kit including everything you need to start the brewing process at home, including a big half-gallon mason jar and an active SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast)
We'll hand out our favorite recipes, go over how NOT to kill your SCOBY, and how to start a quick second fermentation to make your kombucha fruity and fizzy!
Make Room for COLOR!
Embroidery is being revived (did it ever die?) with vivid colors, metallic threads, tons of texture, and dark backgrounds. And we are LOVING it!
Students in this class will learn several different embroidery stitches and techniques to create texture like fringe, fluffy tassels, and beads!
We'll be showing you how to free-hand plant inspired patterns, (it's easy!) but if you are the type of person who freaks at the thought of freehand, we suggest snagging a PDF pattern download from our favorite Katy Biele here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Katybieleart

A talisman is a charm usually worn around the neck to protect the wearer, or to ward off evil or illness. The word has been around in English since the 1630's, and it has its roots in both Arabic and Greek words. So it's safe to say, the concept has been around for quite a while!
We think that today's talisman charms can be simple objects infused with intention. During this soldering class, we will bring out our stash of fun trinkets (which we absolutely LOVE) like old coins, stones, keys, antler tips, and more for you to choose from. Feel free to bring your own special trinkets! Anything that could withstand the heat of a soldering iron (around 500 degrees) is good for experimentation!
Learn to solder using copper tape to create metal bezels around each precious object. You'll complete a few simple charms by the end of the class.
Our Soldered Talisman Charms Workshop is now also available as a private event. Contact us to find out more! firstname.lastname@example.org
This class is a great way to start with watercolor painting, or to jog your watercolor memory if you haven't painted in a while. Using the full moon as our muse, we'll practice a few techniques to achieve feathery textures, areas of high pigmentation, crater-like salt resists, and crisp edges. Working in monochrome (one color) allows us to focus solely on techniques in texture and brushwork!
Students will be working on high quality watercolor paper and will be provided with wooden hanging rails and string. Your finished moon will be ready to hang on the wall!
All supplies and materials are included. Class will last about 1-1.5 hours.
Make your own emulsified lotion with Ashley Polkinghorn, a local handmade soap and lotion maker!
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.
All supplies are provided but you're welcome to bring your own oils or essential oils if you'd like. There may be additional supplies available for purchase to make a larger batch or to take home.
It's back! The gorgeous, rewarding art of Indigo Dye on white cotton fabric!

Each student will custom dye two tea towels. We may have additional items such as pillowcases or totes available for an additional cost.
Weaving is such a meditative and rewarding practice, and with your little lap loom, you'll be creating labors of love from the comfort of your couch!

Learn about creating forms with handles from ceramicist Ashley Polkinghorn.
This workshop is a great opportunity to play around with clay if you haven't had many opportunities to do so, or for you to learn a little more about slab forms and handles if you have dabbled in clay a bit.
Students will learn how to roll a slab from clay, how to shape slabs into forms with volume including mugs and handled bowls, and how to create handles from slabs as well as pulled handles. Students will create a few forms which will be fired and returned by Ashley within a few weeks.
All supplies and materials are included.
Customize your t-shirts, totes, and tea towels using this non-toxic and DIY screen printing method! We'll use simple materials that you might already have in your craft stash to hack the normally super-complicated and chemical-laden process into something you can do on your own.
We'll have a few patterns to choose from, or come with an image you'd like to make a one-color print with. The best images are simple with crisp edges. Monograms, logos, and bold graphics work well. Things like small text are not recommended for this introductory workshop, but you'll definitely be ready to tackle more complicated projects on your own after taking this class! Images from 3"-5" wide are ideal. We'll have some paper and fabric scraps to test print on.
Optional Items to Bring:
- An image to trace
- Clothing or other fabric items to print on
