Generations

Generations - Sewing Susan Vintage Ad

Introducing Generations – a series of workshops designed to put you in touch with other generations!

We are launching an new series of workshops on the first Saturday of each month from 1:30pm – 3:30pm.

The ‘Generations’ platform will feature a volunteer guest who will do an introductory workshop to share a skill or art form that has been passed down from another generation. We’ve already had someone interested in sharing the art of macrame for example. We have a large library resource (including lots of vintage sewing & crafting books!) which can be used as teaching aids and wherever possible we will try to donate the supplies and tools needed.

These workshops will be offered by donation directly to our hosts and kits related to the workshop can be sold directly to guests.

Generations Host Requirements:

  • Workshops must fit in to a 1.5-2 hour period
  • Be able to be taught around a table without the use of electricity
  • Hosts must have good working examples ready to share
  • Skills must not be conflict with our existing core workshop or courses

Dates available: Oct 7, Nov 4, Dec 2, Jan 13, Feb 3, Mar 3, Apr 7, May 5  & June 2

These workshops will take place in our new location at Unit #400 -2950 Douglas Street (just behind Lifestyle Markets).

If you’re interested in hosting a Generations workshop please email your idea and images to jenny (at) themakehouse.ca.
