Make It A Handmade Holiday!

Love the idea of a handmade holiday?  Not sure where to start?  We are hosting 12 weeks of classes – everything from creating a stunning centerpiece, handcrafting ornaments, making party favors, to stocking stuffers.  Make this the year you do yourself!

You are invited to join our “Make It a Handmade Holiday” workshop series. The series consists of twelve workshops, on different holiday crafts or techniques to be offered on consecutive Thursdays starting Oct. 3 from 6–8 p.m. New workshops will be introduced for each week through Thursday, Dec. 19. Thanksgiving week class will meet on Friday, Nov. 29.

The projects and techniques are easy to learn and instructors will offer the students options to create their own unique piece.

Students may sign up for one or as many workshops as they like. Individual class fee is $20. Students who sign up in advance for the full 12 workshops will get a 10% discount. Materials fee vary per class.

First Class on October 3

A crocheted ‘Snowflake Runner’ kicks off the series. Attendees will learn to make a few of the snowflakes during class, and how to link them together. They will leave confident with their ability to make the snowflakes and assemble the runner. The instructor will be available for additional help on the project beyond the class-time. Students may bring their own materials: 2 skeins of Red Heart® “Holiday” Yarn in cream or gold, 5.5 mm [US I-9] crochet hook, and a yarn needle. Kits will be available for $10.
