Craftsman Chris Weiss will be at TURTLE & HARE to share tips on how to take care for wood furniture. Feel free to ask Chris questions about his inspiration, his philosophy of slow craft and slow life, and anything else you are curious about!
Mother's Day is almost here... so TURTLE & HARE decided to celebrate the mothers in our lives by hosting our first jewelry making workshop on May 7th, 2016, which is also Small Business Day! Bring your mothers for a little bonding time or come by yourself to hand craft tassel jewelry for your mother. Mothers, treat yourself to a pair of earrings or a necklace you make with your own two hands.
During our hour and a half workshop, we will be teaching you how to create a hammered texture on brass, how to punch holes in brass, and how to make and attach tassels. You can also customize your jewelry by stamping a name, a word, or numbers onto brass. TURTLE & HARE will provide assorted threads, brass shapes, brass wire, and tools. Each participant will leave with either a pair of handmade earrings or necklace.
Space is limited, so sign up soon for one of our two sessions!
