We believe that people were meant to make together. From the craftsman's workshop to traditional folk schools, we're here to teach and learn from each other. Our social craft workshops are designed to build skill and community while you have fun making and doing in a low pressure space. No experience necessary. Our space and workshops are perfect for celebrations of all kinds, birthdays, showers, staff events, family gatherings, friends night out, or a date night with other couples. 

Here's how it works:

    In-House Workshop Offerings

    Raw Wool Tassels: Learn about the history of the ages-old world craft tradition while you create large and small tassels to adorn your walls, bags, and home. 

    Mini-Weaving, Wall Hangings: Learn to weave without the time commitment of taking on a large loom project. Using our 5x7 looms, we'll learn a few weaving techniques and you'll come away with a woven wall hanging to be proud of. 

    Yarn Wall Hangings: Forget macrame. This simple technique packs a big bang. Create a beautiful yarn wall hanging in just a few hours. If we're feeling ambitious, we can create tassels and pom poms to add to the hangings. 

    Embroidery 101: This is a two hour crash course in the basics of hand embroidery. We'll create a fun sampler that will give you all the skills to embark on your own free hand embroidery journey!

    Block Printing: Based on our new Shoe Box Craft Kit, learn to carve soft-cut linoleum to create a print or stamp. 

    Copper Tooling: Using thick copper foil, we'll design, trace, and emboss a copper relief. We'll apply a faux patina to each finished piece then attach our work to a piece of reclaimed wood. Holiday Option: Copper Ornaments!

    Arrow Making: Archery dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Since then, it has been a part of almost all cultures. We'll learn the basics of arrow making while creating two decorative arrows complete with arrow heads and real feather flocking. 

    Polymer Clay Bowls and Ornaments: Using oven bake clay, we'll roll stamp and embellish to make clay bowls and ornaments. Class Limit: 12

    Candle Making: Using 100% soy candle wax, we'll learn all about how to melt, scent, and pour your own candles. Each maker will create 2-4oz candle tins with wooden wicks. Class limit: 12.

    WOODWORKING:

    Wooden Boxes or Trays: Cut and assemble a rustic wood tray or box using cedar planks. Sand, stain and finish to your liking. Plants included upon request. 

    *Reclaimed Wood Candle Holders: We have tons of scrap wood and tree limbs. Cut, drill and finish your own holders then we'll blend a few scents, melt, and pour 100% soy wax into your holders. 

    Wood Flower Press: Create an 8x10 flower press to preserve all of those specimens. We'll also talk about proper harvesting and preservation techniques. 

    *Sling Shots and Felt Ammo: Dennis the Menace has nothing on the adults that come to make sling shots. Design, cut, and finish your own wrist rocket. We'll then spend some time making felted wool balls to use as ammo. This is a great corporate event or a date night!
