Craft Nights

Over the years, I've held on to far too many craft supplies. I don't want to get rid of them - I bought them for a reason! But I'm not using them on my own. So let's use them together. These are not "classes," in that I do not consider myself an expert in any of these things. Just somebody who has a pile of stuff and is happy to share it.

$30 covers a cocktail or mocktail, a snack, and most materials needed. Please eat a light dinner beforehand. Located in North Park, Victoria, BC.

Sculpey Earrings

Last Christmas, my husband bought me a gift card to Opus, and I spent it all on Sculpey polymer clay. And then I didn't use any of it. Come make tiny things to put on earring hooks!

(No photo because I've never done this before but I'll probably make tiny fruit and I'll also have those little shape-cutters for people who aren't crafty)

Linoleum Block Printing

In 2010, I went through a major block-printing phase. It's over now, but I still have the press and the carving tools - and lots of blocks! Also, the ink is not dried up yet. Bring whatever paper you'd like to print on (suggestion blank 5x6 notecards). I've got a holiday card, valentine's, father's day, new baby congratulations, and some other weirdos. We'll also use erasers to make mini-stamps that you can take with you.

Embroidery

Once I bought a whole bunch of embroidery thread, and then made one thing, and then... that was it. It turned out pretty well, so I can probably give you some level of instruction. I've also got lots of beads and sequins you can use to snazz things up. You'll get a mini embroidery hoop and a pieces of fabric, plus thread. If you're terrible at drawing and don't like abstract, please bring an inspiration image to trace that is 4-5 inches tall/wide. This will take way longer than 2.5 hours to finish, so I'll be sure to send you home with extra thread.
