Binders Holiday Gift Making Workshops


Learn how to make cool handmade gifts this Holiday Season in two weekend holiday gift making workshops this Fall at Binders!
Taught by Anne Elser, these workshops are fast, fun and very rewarding. Come join us!
COLLAPSABLE CONTAINER:
October Saturday 17th: 10am-5pm
October Sunday 18th: 11am-5pm
$140.00
This container, designed by Lisa Ellerin, has six sides and a hinged base that enables it to fold flat. It’s sturdy and lightweight and is made of 2-ply chipboard ( or davey board) and covered in decorative Washi Paper. All the supplies you need to make this structure can be purchased at Binders right before the workshop. We’ll meet in the morning and break for lunch each day. Our workshops are fun and fast! Make a big one to hold pens/pencils, brushes or paper scraps. Make a tiny one for q-tips or hairpins! Make a set of 3 or more and nest them together on your work surface to make a “hive” of sorting containers. We’ll have 2 full days to create your project and time permitting, we’ll create a circular paper ornament and a miniature origami holiday tree.
I look forward to meeting you!
