I love starting a Monday with a fun announcement. I’ve been planning this for a while and so happy to finally announce that I’ll be hosting a workshop at West Elm Toronto on Thursday, November 20! It’s called Be The Maker Series and it’s going to be an evening filled with making, meeting, chatting, snacking and ok, who are we kidding, probably some shopping. I’ve been planning this event for quite some time so I hope you all love it just as much as I do! With a big thanks to companies like Trade Show Booth which have helped me design unique graphics and even supply some free goodies for you all too, I couldn’t have done it without them! The planning process hasn’t been easy and I’m not sure I would have done it without the support of some great companies but It’s finally all coming together and I’m very excited for all of you to come and take a look around and learn a few new tricks. You’re going to learn how to make these gorgeous & unique dinner napkins for either your own holiday table or as a gift for someone special. Oh and I think green is beautiful and festive but there will be lots of other colours to make your own creation.
Here’s all the details. For $25 not only will you get a fun evening with me and some new crafty friends surrounded by some seriously stylish and festive decor but it also includes a set of 4 West Elm’s Cross Dye Napkins in white (a $19 value!), all art supplies, snacks & beverages from Mildred’s Temple Kitchen and a little thank you gift to take home. Sounds like the perfect way to spend a Thursday night if you ask me. Because of the planning involved and the space there’s limited spots so you do have to grab a ticket in advance. You can reserve your spot and grab your Be The Maker Series ticket here.
A handmade gift is always extra special or being able to say “I made that” is so satisfying don’t you think? Come early and do a little shopping to find some table top pieces that will go perfectly with your new napkins. I just love West Elm so much and I’m so excited to be working with them for this fun event. Although they sell lots of beautiful things, they also are big supporters of artisans and selling handcrafted goods. Through 2015 West Elm has committed to paying 35 million (!) to artisans that use handcrafted techniques. You gotta love a company that backs up their beliefs with some hard cash money.
Aren’t you just dying to get your hands dirty (you won’t really get them dirty, don’t worry) and make something? Grab your Be The Maker Series ticket and join us!
