There are some great classes coming up in the next few weeks at my shop, Gather:
* Tues July 21 – Learn to make a gorgeous fiber wrapped necklace. We carry these beautiful necklaces in our shop by talented local maker Erica Fink. In this class she is teaching her technique on how to make these necklaces as well as how to make tassels and pom poms to embellish necklaces or whatever else you fancy.
* Thurs July 23 – Craft a handsome denim apron. I have a bit of an obsession with aprons and have been collecting them for many years. How satisfying to have one that is custom made. I think this would be a great gift too.
* Mon July 27 – Cameras & Cocktails. Improve your photography and drink a glass (or two) of wine while learning. Enough said.
* Tues July 28 – Create a stunning summer wreath. One of the girls at the shop is skilled at making gorgeous wreaths. You’ll walk away with your very own that you’ve made from scratch.
