By the way, this one’s for the grown-ups only!

We’ll guide you in projects that encourage you to enjoy the process and keep it local – about as local as you can get! We’ll have tea towel screen printing, photo album or sketch book binding, mini succulent gardens  and more for you to choose from – make them all or make a few of your favorite. Have fun with your holiday prep and leave armed with a few beautiful and thoughtful handmade gifts. What better way to say happy holidays than to say, “Yes, it’s handmade.”
