Five Workshops to Take in March.

In this workshop, taught by the talented Amie Philips, you will learn several fundamental knotting techniques to create a customizable plant hanger. This skill set is one you can utilize in the future to craft wall hangings or other plant hanger designs. A plant, container, and all materials to fashion your plant hanger are included in class cost. $65/person

2. WOVEN NECKLACES W/ SARAH NEUBERT
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7TH. 6:30-9PM

Learn to weave in miniature! In this class, we will create distinctive and personal pieces of wearable art on a manageable, portable scale. Using a simple miniature handmade loom and natural, plant-based fibers in an array of gorgeous colors, and maybe a bit of vintage sparkle, you will weave a one-of-a-kind necklace pendant and leave the class wearing it! We’ll cover basic techniques that are applicable to all types of weaving. $65/person

Hey. Hello. We've got a new business and we're pretty excited to share the news about Shoe Box Crafts. I've had this idea brewing for the past 6 months and it is all coming together, slowly but surely. We've had our Soap Carving Kits for a few years and our clients have asked if we we'd get further into the craft kit business. For a long time, I didn't think we would. We already stock some really great kits from makers all over the US and Canada. Then, we really examined many of the craft kits for adults and especially those for kids that are currently on the market and we saw some needs...

What if we offered kits that have:

  • simple packaging that is well-designed, reusable, limits waste, and isn't gender specific (turns out, PEOPLE like crafts)
  • high quality tools and materials that people will use again and again
  • Projects, instructions, and video that make every project doable for its audience. 
  • and what if the packaging was the coolest, most old school craft inspiration ever, the shoe box?!

So here we are! Coming this Saturday to our brick and mortar shop and to the internet.

We will have two kits available:

Block Printing (ages 10+)

Our favorite Speed Ball Carving Handle with three cutter blades (#1,2,3), brayer, ink, and soft cut linoleum. Cut, carve, and print your own block for cards, fabric, and more. This is the perfect starter pack for block printing. It's one of our favorite crafts for adults and older kids. 

  • $48/each
  • 5 kits: $210 (think in-home maker party or all the crafty folks on your list)

Kids Shop Box (ages 5+).

All of our Open Build/Play favorites in one place. 

We asked our most prolific kid makers at the shop to fill boxes with the supplies and tools they wish they had at home. Here's what they came up with. 

Scrap wood variety pack, including pieces with predrilled holes, screw driver, screws, safety glasses, cardboard scraps, tempera cakes (the best not-too-messy paint!), paint brush, Glue-All glue, and scissors. What can they make? Sky's the limit. Robots, junk cats, planes, gather up a few bottle caps and make a rolling toy. The idea here is for the materials to inspire and trust us, they do. Every time. 

  • $36/kit
  • $160/five

Idea: Give the Gift of Make with a Shop Gift Card

Let's face it. It's here. The holidays are upon us. There are a million things to celebrate and do. I propose not freaking out. At least this is what I tell myself. We've got this and there are ways to enjoy the season. It is my goal to be thoughtful about the things we say yes to as a business and a family. Our kids are young and we don't get too many more seasons where we're all together. We'll try our best to make time for each other and ourselves. To make this season about warmth, connection, and meaning.
