Holiday Soirée Zoom Workshops / Saturday, December 4th, 2021 / 10am PST

$ 200.00

Usher in the holiday season with our annual Holiday Soirée Workshops!

Join artists Molly, Tyn and Kaari for a day filled with three rounds of crafting keepsake ornaments and holiday decor to adorn your home and packages. 

You will receive kits that include everything you need for each workshop - as well as some creative materials and ideas for making your packages extra special.  This three-hour Zoom workshop will be a celebration of the holidays, complete with hot cocoa and holiday postcards.

Workshops include:

English Paper Pieced Ornaments with Kaari 

Using French General's upcoming collection, Bonheur de Jour, we will create English paper-pieced ornaments that can hang from your tree or be made into a garland for holiday decorations.  You'll get completely hooked on stitching these pretty little hexagons and then add wool felt backing and a ring for hanging. Personalize each ornament by stitching names or dates - these are the perfect gift to include in your holiday cards as well!


Baa Baa Felted Sheep with Tyn

Create your own flock of little lambs to adorn your tree, mantle, or holiday table. Honestly, they are so sweet you will want them around longer than just the holidays. You'll love a low-tech craft that you can move from room to room but still offers great reward with the finished product.  You will be so 
impressed with yourself when you are done!  A few simple supplies, a smidge of vision, and 
some time. Tyn will walk you through creating your armature, and break down the steps to sculpt your own flock.

 

Tiny Winter Village Holiday Houses with Molly 



It takes a village, but you gotta start with one...

 Molly will introduce you to the late 18th Century tradition of making tiny houses to decorate one's home during the holidays, ushering in the winter season.  
Sometimes referred to as Putz Houses, evolved from the German word 'putzen' meaning to clean or decorate;  they can also be called 'glitter houses'. 
You'll begin with a template and learn the techniques to building a sweet home with window treatments, a sparkling roof, a platform yard with a fence, the trees, and the home's entire glittering show.  
The kit provides you with the materials to create your own little village; Molly will also show you how to turn your tiny glitter home into an ornament or put a light inside as a welcoming beacon.  Creating this tiny world is somewhat habit-forming and you might find yourself showing off your tiny, sparkly houses all year long!

 

Mini-Workshops and Tips include:

Your holiday kit box will arrive filled with everything you need to make each project and lots of extra bits to help celebrate in the season!
