Join us in the new year for a three-day maker camp where we will be teaching a range of hands-on skills using a fun mix of materials and processes.

Consider giving the gift of an experience this holiday season! We think attending Mindful Makers and developing core maker skills is sure to be a gift that keeps on giving.


Here's our schedule of activities:

Wednesday January 2nd - Friday January 4th, 2019.

WEDNESDAY

  • linoleum carving

    • We will make our own rubber stamps with a repeatable pattern for printing on paper and fabric

  • needle felting

    • Make an adorable figurine, ornament, or functional pin cushion sculpture from sheep’s wool!


ThurSDAY

  • sewing draw string bags

    • We will be using a sewing machine to make a fully reversible bag with the printed fabric from Wednesday.

  • paper bead making

    • Up-cycle old magazine pages into one of a kind paper beads. Our custom rolling machines make this process quick and fun!


FRIDAY

  • Kumihimo

    • A Japanese braided cord making technique, perfect for creating your own key chains, necklaces or bracelets. Beads made on Thursday can be incorporated into this craft.

  • Snail Mail Stationary

    • Who doesn’t love getting mail? We will be crafting up our own cards, letters & envelopes with the intention to send these goodies out to friends and family. We will be using a variety of paper crafting tools including wet & dry embossing, stamping, punching, cutting and other paper craft embellishments. We will also explore watercolour painted cards using various resist techniques.


DAILY SCHEDULE & WHAT TO BRING:

We will be taking two nutrition breaks during the day to eat. During these periods we will also be spending time outdoors and playing games, weather permitting.
