This year, instead of buying a whole buncha crap that no one really needs, we challenge you to give handmade gifts and the gift of experiences! Don’t worry; we have lots of ideas for you.
idea number one: take a workshop to make a finished gift
In our workshops, you’ll leave with a beautiful project that would make a great gift. How about a screenprinted tote bag or tshirt, custom soap, chocolate bars, a ceramic dish*, a macrame wall hanging or plant hanger? Wanna really go crazy? Screenprint a design and then use it to sew a tote bag! What about chocolate, in a tote bag that you sewed, that features a design you printed. Whoa.
idea number two: come to our Handmake Your Holidays Pop-up on December 17th, 11am-2pm
If you need to knock out a bunch of gifts at once, take advantage of our holiday pop-up (info below)! Our vendors will have wares ready to go, or work with them on quick projects to make your own.
idea number three: give a gift certificate
idea number four: do whatever you want in open crafting
Come on in during our regular hours to make your own cards, wrapping paper, or whatever you can imagine.
*Ceramic pieces do require two weeks for firing in the kiln.
a make / take art and gifts market
Ready-to-go gifts will be available, or work with our artisans to make your own soap, chocolate truffles, bath salts, shibori dyed towels, ceramic ornaments, holiday and thank you cards, and more.
Stroll in and out, enjoy coffee and morning drinks 😉 , and take care of all your gifts!
P.S. What’s your favorite handmade/homemade gift you’ve ever received or made/given?
