The holidays are here and the most personal gift you can give your loved one is something made with your own two hands. So how about a class where we give you all the materials and teach you how to do it? Celebrate the holidays in Downtown Seattle's Pioneer Square neighborhood by making a craft so cool you can give it to anyone (but you might want to keep if for yourself).
Produced by the Metropolitan Improvement District’s Pioneer Square neighborhood and held at the Grand Central Arcade, O'Crafty Night is a series of two classes on crafting gifts by hand taught by local artisans. Both classes will be held on a Thursday evening from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at 214 1st Avenue South, and the cost is just $10/per person (all supplies and tools included). See Brown Paper Tickets to register. Holidays in the City is helping promote O'Crafty Night to spread the knowledge of handmade goods and help you with those last minute gifts.
Learn how to create a custom felt box for your cherished items, or use it as a decorative package for your holiday gifts your friends and family will keep forever. Depending on how fast you craft, there may also be time to create a custom floral or geometric layered brooch using recycled felted wool! (All supplies provided.)
Learn how to create a custom hat from a recycled sweater to keep your loved ones warm this season! If you're a quick crafter, you can make up to 3-4 crafts from 1 recycled sweater: arm cuffs, arm warmers, flowers, bib necklaces, appliques for the hats and more! (All supplies provided.)
Whether you're a crafty expert or you've never DIY'ed before, come on out and join the fun at both classes!
