Freezer Paper Print Making - Wed May 26th

For our next Handmade Nest Workshop we'll be trying something totally different...and just a little messy.
Print making!
During this 3 hour workshop we'll teach you how to make your own unique print using freezer paper and fabric ink.

You'll leave this workshop with an adorable printed-by-you canvas bag and a customized tea towel that, though you will have every intention of giving as a hostess gift, you'll probably want to keep for yourself.
This course promises to unleash the print making monster in you (everyone's got one you know).

The cost is a measly $45 and includes all materials as well as snacks and refreshments (translation: wine) and a $5 gift card to Blackbird.

For this one we've got 12 spots available.

If you'd like to join us Wednesday May 26th from 6pm-9pm please read the postcard below and let us know by emailing or calling 613-256-9669

This workshop is for adults only.
$10 deposit or credit card number required at booking.
Hope to see you soon!

Last night marked our 10th Workshop that we've hosted here at Handmade Nest, and we are so amazed! Emily and I have been having a blast with the workshops and continue to be blown away with how many women need a night out to create and have a chat.

We would love to extend our appreciation to all you wonderful ladies for joining in the handmade fun and hope that the little bits of knowledge we've passed on have led to other creations and gifts.

Have a great week-end!!

Paper Butterfly Art - Wed May 19th

The Butterfly is a universal symbol of change, resurrection and transformation.
In some myths, the Butterfly brings sleep and dreams.
In others, it is symbolic of fertility and is representative of love and relationships.

Here at Handmade Nest, we just think they're pretty.

For our next Creative Workshop, we'll be repurposing all types of pre-loved paper into pretty little pieces of framed art - perfect to give as a wedding or baby shower gift, or to keep for yourself.

The cost is $40 and includes all materials, supplies and refreshments.

If you'd like to join us here in the shop Wednesday May 19th from 6pm to 9pm, please view the postcard below and reply to this email or call us here at 613-256-9669.
