Have some creative fun at our Open Crafting Session!

At open crafting sessions you are able to make any of the projects that you’ve seen previously offered at our studio!   We have both adult and kid crafts available.  No registration is required.  You can just show up and choose your project!  Most adult projects take about 2 hours to complete.

Below is a list of our projects that are currently the most popular.  We still have other projects available including some new seasonal/Christmas projects!  Or, if you have a project in mind that you’ve seen online please send us a photo of it and we can see if it’s possible! 

§  Painted Wooden Door Hangers  -  $35  -  We have over 40 shapes and letters of the alphabet for you to choose from! Each door hanger is fully customizable and comes with a hanger and free burlap bow, if you choose.

§  Wooden Quote Signs  -  $34-$44 (depending on size chosen)  -  We provide you with a fail-proof stencil as a guide to paint the letters onto a pre-stained plank of wood.  You can choose your colors for the background (optional) and lettering from our entire rainbow-selection of paints.   We have over 50 wording choices to choose from OR you can have us make a custom stencil for you! 

§  Reversible Holiday Blocks  -  $34  -  You’ll use vinyl lettering, paint and/or colored scrapbooking paper, and your creativity to decorate pre-cut, sanded, and stained wooden blocks.  The blocks are reversible, so you’ll decide which two of our variety of seasonal sayings you’d like for your project. 

§  Burlap Wreaths  -  Average price: $35  -  We will teach you how to make a burlap “bubble” wreath using a wire form and a roll of burlap.  After you complete the wreath you’ll be able to decorate it using any of the décor from our Wreath Bar.  We have bows, ribbon, wooden letters/words, faux flowers, pinecones, and fun Christmas and wintery stems!  Everything is priced a la carte. 

§  Front Porch Welcome Sign  $46  -  You’ll be making a 54” tall signyou’re your front porch! You can paint the pre-stained board or leave it bare. Then you will paint your 'Welcome' letters in whatever colors you choose. 

§  String Art  -  $32 (Adults)  $15 (Kids)  -  For this unique craft you can choose from 30+ patterns.  You’ll then use a hammer to drive nails around the pattern and string embroidery floss around the nails to fill it in!

§  Terrariums/Succulent Plantings  Average price: $34  -  Choose from our large selection of pots, planters, and terrariums and create your own succulent planting!  We have cute, unique succulents in stock for you to choose from and an “Extras Bar” of fun décor items that you can choose from to decorate your planting including rocks, moss, flamingos, unicorns, garden signs, dinosaurs, and MORE!


We do have a few rules for open crafting….

1.     No string art projects.  String Art is a loud craft that is only truly appreciated by the one doing the hammering.  :)  If you’d like to do a string art project during an evening please see our calendar for a few String Art Classes that are posted that you can sign up for!

2.     While we work our hardest to keep supplies in stock, we cannot guarantee that we will always have every project or shape available.  If you are set on a specific project it is best to email/call/message us prior to the date you’re coming in so that we can set aside the project for you.  Otherwise don’t worry because we have a LARGE number of projects and options available and we are sure that you’ll find something that you love.

3.     Please arrive by 6:00pm on weeknights and 2:00pm on Sundays at the latest to begin choosing your craft.  We close at 8:00pm/4:00pm and we’d like to make sure you have enough time to finish your project.

Registration isn’t necessary but it can be helpful so that we can better plan and get ready for you!  Space is available on a first come, first serve basis.  If you’d like to save a table for your group please call/message/email us or fill out the form below.  Please include the number of people in your party (adults and kids), what time you’d like to come in, and if you have any specific craft project requests for anyone in the group.

We can’t wait to craft with you!
