Craft Night: Floral Design Class

Here are a few photos from our Floral Design Craft Night last week. It was so fun to host Studio Choo at our studio – they’re amazing! Each class started with introductions, and I shared a few ways that Bing image search can help with finding color inspiration. Then, Alethea and Jill taught the basics of flower care and how to build floral arrangements. After their lesson, each person got to choose their own flowers and start designing their own bouquets. The Studio Choo team wandered around and gave advice and instruction. I was super impressed with everyone’s creativity! Thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright for putting the evening together. We’ll be announcing more craft nights soon – so stayed tuned! (And make sure to join our mailing list to get early access to sign up!)

For the goodie bags, Poppies for Grace sent over a confetti balloons and sweetheart gift kits for everyone who attended. We had a few extra, so we used them as decorations.

Craft Night: Screenprinting Class

Today I’m so excited to share the photos from our screenprinting last week. We had over 120 people come through our studio on Saturday and Sunday, there was so much energy and we had so much fun! At the beginning of each class, I shared some of my favorite ways to use Bing search for crafting. Then, my friend Andy Kane from Sparka Screenprinting taught everyone how to make and use a screenprinter. Then we had 6 screenprinters ready to go and everyone printed like crazy. We provided everyone with a T-Shirt (thanks American Apparel!) and tote bag to print on. People also brought the most creative things to try (baby onesies, clutches, aprons) in the screenprinter. I have to give special thanks to Merrilee Liddiard & Erin Jang for their beautiful designs and thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright for putting it all together!

Our food came from Green Heart Foods – my new favorite restaurant near our studio. They have the best salads and snacks! They also have really yummy cookies that I couldn’t stop eating all weekend.
