Surprise Holiday Gift Workshop – Revealed

Here are some photos from our wonderful parent/child gift making workshop in December. I’ve been waiting to reveal the gifts since the final product was unknown to the participants until they unwrapped it on Christmas! The parents & kids were separated while they each made portions of the gift. I baked, glossed, & assembled everything then wrapped it all up for their holiday SURPRISE.

We are planning to have another parent/child craft night in February for Valentine’s Day – stay tuned…

The kids worked on painting the vases and making a mini flower.

Grownups enjoyed hot tea while making their beautiful clay flowers.

Funny all the insecure comment that were made by the adults at the beginning… their flowers came out amazing!

I’m going to try and post about the holidays & our NYE party over the weekend, but in the meantime, please enjoy this picture of my son. He thought this move would be easy (notice the hands in the pocket), but his face tells us otherwise 😉

Robots with Dad

Happy Father’s Day!
We had a good time at our “Robots with Dad” Workshop yesterday. We had quite the variety of pieces & parts to work with and our father/child teams were very creative. It was great watching the fathers/grandfathers  interact with their kids; teaching them how to use tools, and the glue gun, planning their robots together…

We spread out all over the studio to work.

Special thanks to my assistant, Charity, who donated
a lot of cool items for our use!
