Do you consider yourself a creative person?
We truly believe that every person is a creative person and that creativity is just a muscle that needs to be stretched sometimes. Some people may use it more frequently than others, but we all have it.
Getting creative can bring so much to our lives. Creating can be therapeutic. Learning a new skill can bring personal fulfillment and joy. Making alongside others can build community and unique relationships. We want to celebrate all of those things.
By inviting you to our first ever MAKERS Workshop & Creative Social! We're very passionate about the joy that can come from creating, so we want to invite you to join us in learning a new creative skill (it will be easy, we promise!) while in the company of other curious people. What makes this workshop different? It won't just be us standing at the front of a room spewing off complicated instructions one by one. No, no, no, my friends. This is all about having a unique, fun, social experience with a little bit of creativity sprinkled in. We will certainly give you the lowdown on how to tackle the project, but there will be lots of opportunity to simply create and socialize. Oh, and lots of opportunity for some delicious snacking too.
Have we convinced you yet? Here are some more details:
In this workshop, we will be creating embroidery applique wall art. What is that, you may ask? Check out some of the sample photos below. You'll have the opportunity to choose from a variety of sample templates (or create your own design from scratch, if you'd prefer), where you will then create a custom piece of embroidered art using a large selection of cotton fabrics and embroidery floss. Trust us, it's much easier than it may sound!
The workshop will take place on Friday March 24, 2017 from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm at Willowgrove (11737 McCowan Road, Stouffville).
The earlybird cost of the workshop is $35, tax included ($40 after March 18, 2017). This includes all the required materials and supplies, all required instruction, a cozy place to create, and the most delicious treats you can imagine. At the end of the evening, you will leave with a unique piece of embroidered wall art, the skills needed to make another, new friends, and a very happy heart!
The workshop is open to any individual (over the age of 16) who is interested in learning a new skill and building new relationships. Any skill level is welcome to attend - whether you're a seasoned pro or someone who doesn't consider themselves to possess a single creative bone in their body. Regardless of your experience, we are happy to have you join us!
