May 2015 Workshops

I have two fantastic workshops coming up in May!

First up, I’m excited to be working with Crafting Community for their amazing family weekend in sunny Palm Springs, May 1-3, 2015. I’ll be teaching poolside crafts alongside an impressive group of talented colleagues.  “A celebration of family and community, Crafting Community’s acclaimed annual retreat is designed to shift gears from the hectic hustle of daily life and bring families closer together through the power of art and recreation. In addition to the diverse array of crafting workshops led by renowned artists and designers, the weekend ensures a healthy amount of recreation, relaxation and social programming, with activities ranging from sunrise yoga to family portraits, and a disco dance party under the stars. Free from devices and trends, Crafting Community encourages a connected experience between children, parents and families as they spend quality time together, make unique things, and simply enjoy each other’s company.”

And then on May 17th I’ll be a hosting a Himmeli Mobile Workshop in the charming Meng & Mahar Studio in Los Angeles’ downtown historic core!

UPDATE! The May 17th Himmeli Mobile Workshop has sold out but a second session has been added on Sunday, May 31st!  Find complete details and sign up for the May 31st class here.


Join us in learning a vintage Nordic craft as we create and construct minimal, modern mobiles – perfect for your home, office or dorm! Himmeli mobiles originated in Finland as a traditional harvest decoration created from natural wheat or rye straw. We’ll be making updated versions in bright neon shades, ornamented with happy ombré-hued tassels.

Each participant will learn techniques, tips and tricks to successfully create their own modern himmeli mobile and decorative tassels. All tools and materials will be provided to begin your mobile along with extra goodies to continue crafting at home. Visit the studio website to learn more and reserve your seat!
