Cake Decorating – Basic

This beginner class will teach you how to make buttercream, how to properly crumb coat a cake, then how to put on an ultra smooth final layer that is ready to decorate. It will also include how to properly fill and use piping bags, and then how to make flowers, leaves, and correct writing techniques.

You need to bring an 8” cake in the flavour of your choice (feel free to use a mix and make it easy on yourself! You want a nice firm cake). All icing and tools are provided and you will obviously be able to take your cake home to enjoy! Cost is $35.

 

Crocheting – Beginner

This class is for those who have never held a crochet hook before, or are still pretty new to the craft. We will be making a crochet cotton dishcloth and, in the process, learning how to make a chain, single crochet, and double crochet, as well as finishing off the final product. Cost is $20. You need to bring a 5mm crochet hook (6mm is also fine) and one ball of 100% cotton yarn (a small 1.5oz one is fine) in your choice of color. I recommend Bernat.

 

Grapevine Snowman Wreath

Would you like to learn how to make grapevine wreaths with virtually no tools? In this class, you will get to learn how to wind grapevine and get it to hold together with no wires or string. Then we will be letting everyone express their own creativity by decorating their wreath into an adorable snowman! Cost is $35/person for the class and all materials are provided.

 

Grapevine Heart Wreath

 

Just in time for Valentine’s Day. Make yourself a heart shaped grapevine wreath wrapped in festive ribbon. Make sure to dress for the weather because we will be doing the actual construction of the wreath outdoors (unless it’s super cold). Cost is $30, all materials supplied.

 

Painted Family Photo Holder Sign

 

Make an attractive family sign ready to hand small pictures with clothespin clasps. Using acrylic paints and stencils, you will design a sign with your family name. Cost is $40, all materials supplied.
