Learn the art of Punch Needle, even if you've never embroidered before. Think latch hook meets embroidery sewing. It's a fun, easy craft that you will find relaxing and creative. Each project is double-sided. You can use the side that embroiders smooth stitches or the opposite side that leaves lovely, tightly woven loop, like a rug.

We will use Monk cloth, pre-stretched in a wood embroidery hoop, an Amy Oxford punch needle that is yours to keep, and Quince wool yarn for our project.

Testimonial:

"I had zero background in calligraphy/art/design before taking Nicole's workshop. But thanks to Nicole's patient and encouraging style, small class size (I appreciated the extra help!) and starter supply kit to take home, I found myself continuing to letter at home. It began as an escape for myself as a new mom. Soon enough - six months after taking Nicole's workshop - I opened up my own shop on Etsy selling Hawaiian-inspired hand lettered designs."

YOU CAN vibrant watercolor workshop with Mollie Garre

Join us while we dive into watercolor and gouache to create a pretty, motivational piece of art!  All ages 10 years and up welcome.  Great for sharing with family or friends!

-In this class you will receive instruction on basic watercolor technique and how to use gouache paint to make it BRIGHT and BOLD! We will invite the use of mixed media to accent your piece in your own unique way.

-You will have access to a watercolor artist set and brushes during class. You will also receive three samples of gouache to use during class and take home.

Mollie Garre is local artist, mother of 3 and Clinical Social Worker by trade.  She learned early in her practice the role art can play in healing and allowing a person to speak. At the moment she is primarily focused on raising three young children, but the fire to advocate, celebrate, and speak up for others is wildly alive.

Surrounding her children with art that spoke to their hearts and imagination is important to Mollie.  She covered their rooms with pieces that celebrated diversity, were motivational, and promoted their self esteem. 

Mollie Garre currently resides in San Diego but was born and raised outside of Portland, OR. She went to the University of Washington, Seattle for both my bachelor’s degrees (in Political Science and Spanish), and my Master of Social Work degree.

April 4/20 | 7:00PM  9:00PM

Join us for a fun workshop while we host one of San Diego's favorite local candle makers!  You will learn how to pour your own candle and take home 3 different scents that you choose and make. Enjoy craft beer from local brewery, Stumblefoot and wine.

Workshop Video:  https://vimeo.com/242329945

About the Makers:

In the spring of 2015, wife, mother of four, military veteran and maker, Melissa Burgess, received her first DYI candle kit. Melissa quickly fell in love with the candle making process and began pouring them for her home, friends, and family.

After signing up for a handful of local maker's markets, Melissa's unique blends, strong fragrant throws, and muted packaging, quickly gained the attention of San Diego consumers and retailers alike.

Now what was once a part-time hobby has become a full-time family business with a retail/pour studio in Oceanside, CA and over 150 retailers across the country!

Why “Craft + Foster”?

People often ask where the name Craft + Foster originated.  It’s pretty simple!

The word “craft” refers to the artisan craft of candle making, while “foster” speaks to Melissa and Chad's desire to create products that subtly enhance life’s everyday moments, by fostering warmth and light to any space and occasion.
