In April we had an awesome Bookmaking Fun! kid’s workshop. Each child learned a bunch of fun folds and some simple ways to sew up a book. Personalizing and decorating the book covers was definitely the highlight of the day! I’m sad we were so busy playing that we didn’t get many pictures of the finished products.
In March we were able to host a felted doll birthday party. Each girl was able to stuff and then decorate their doll. They learned how to needle felt wool roving to create their own unique doll! They made clothes from fabric scraps and tulle and had a blast giving their dolls fun accessories – sequin belts and headbands, purses, flowers, buttons, bracelets etc. We were cracking up at all the outfits!
We had a great time teaching this cute group of girls how to make felted purses! This intro to felting class covered the basics of needle felting and the girls got to raid Nancy’s stash of upcycled wool sweaters and wool roving. She even taught them her favorite trick – how to twist wool yarn into a perfect purse strap! We loved seeing all the fun designs and each gal got to take home a one-of-a-kind purse!
Interested in a custom felting class for a group? Contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org for info!
We had a great time at our first Letterpress Workshop in February! It was a snowy day and it was nice to be cozy in the studio chatting and printing! Each participant learned the basics of letterpress and printed 25 thank you cards on our vandercook printing press. They also learned how to line envelopes and had fun choosing from a variety of patterned paper and envelopes.
