February First Weekend Event:
February 2nd, 3rd & 4th
THREE individual workshop parties will be offered
To reserve your spot, visit our Shop page and choose your preferred time. Spots will be limited!
February is the month of love, romance, roses and chocolates, right? Well, at The Makery KC, we are all about celebrating women. We say, forget the mushy stuff, and let’s celebrate each other and how kick ass we are! From self love to honoring our dear friends for “Galentine’s Day”, we have put together three workshops which will leave you feeling honored, pampered and pretty. Because we deserve it!
Kintsugi, Personalized Double Layer Necklace Set
Originating in Japan, this modern art form has a deeper meaning than simply a beautiful piece of jewelry or decor. The noticeable cracks found within the pendant are looked upon with admiration, rather than as a flaw. Repaired with gold, the cracks are seen as a piece of the object’s history which only adds to its beauty.
As women, we often dwell on our flaws and pasts and wish them away. Let’s vow to change the conversation and look at ourselves and others in a more admiring light. We are girlfriends, mothers, wives, co-workers and we are stronger, smarter and more beautiful because of our cracks. Each flaw is a badge of honor earned in this short but rich life.
Join us in making and rebuilding these absolutely stunning pieces of jewelry. February, a month that celebrates love, is the perfect time to show ourselves and the ladies we admire most how awesome we all can be. Celebrate “Galentine’s Day” by attending this workshop where you will make the kintsugi pendant, and can personalize the first layer with a letter stamp.
You will make a set of 2 necklaces. One for you, and one for a special woman in your life who could also use a little love!
Bold & Beautiful Wreath
Christmas has commenced, so who’s ready for Spring?!? Beat the winter blues with this bold and beautiful wreath. Perfect to welcome February, the month of love, and our first glimpse in to Spring. The rich colors of this wreath against the gold ring will look perfect against a front door, a front room or even a little girl’s room! The plum against the blush is just so pretty.
Once you understand how to construct a wreath, it’s easy to recreate for any season and all occasions. This is a workshop you will not want to miss.
Relaxing Bath Tray
It’s time to treat yo self in February! What better way to do it than a personalized bath tray?! Grab some pampering bubbles and perhaps some wine on your way home from our workshop and you will be on your way to ultimate relaxation!
Bring fellow girlfriends or fellow moms who need a break, and make this adorable set! Choose the colors to accompany your specific decor.
January First Weekend Event:
We are starting 2018 off with a bang!! Three all new, very on-trend projects will be offered for the month, and we already know they are going to be big hits. From a personalized sign to a table centerpiece and rounding it out with an Anthropologie wall hanging hack, it is going to be hard for you to choose which one to make! Or maybe you don’t have to ;).
After all of the Christmas exhaustion, it’s time for you to treat yo’ self! Join us for some DIY, wine and treats. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
Fringe Wall Hanging
An Anthropolgie hack, this beautiful piece will cost you close to $200 at the high end store. We will be showing you how to complete for a fraction of the cost!!
Break up the monotony of framed pictures and prints with the unique and modern texture of a fringe wall hanging.
Great for any skill level, you will want to recreate these for gifts and every room in your house. From nurseries to entryways, this piece will look perfect.
As always, we will provide a seasonal snack and wine pairing while you work away.
Personalized Home Sign
What a bold and unique statement for you home! We are LOVING the fresh feel of this personalized sign.
Here at The Makery KC, we always strive to make sure you can make a project your own, and this sign is no exception. Want to change up the colors? You got it! Want to change the layout of the wording? Not a problem. We do all of the hard work, so all you have to do it sit back, figure out what is best for your home and execute.
Tiered Copper Candlestick Centerpiece
Copper continues to be king! This beautiful candle centerpiece will blow your guests away. It’s contemporary yet still feels traditional and farmhouse. It’s seasonless, and can be dressed up or down for any holiday or occasion. Adorn with succulents for the Spring, greenery for the fall and winter. Not to mention, a similar piece would set you back $150 at West Elm, Anthropologie or Restoration Hardware.
Join us in making this simple yet stunning project. It’s perfect for any skill level, and you will leave with a show stopping item. No welding required 🙂
See you in January!
December First Weekend Event:
It’s our last workshops of 2017, and we have got some good ones for you! We have your holiday bases covered. From home decor to potential gifts for all the special people in your life and something to satisfy your sweet tooth. We think you will love them all and have a hard time choosing!
Designer Holiday Cookies with Take Home Kit
Our favorite local baker is back, and she is excited to show us all of her tricks of the trade with a designer holiday cookie workshop!
It’s awe inspiring how bakers can create these beautiful desserts from such a simple concept, making something ordinary, extraordinary. The only downfall…the price tags on these puppies are steep! So why not learn how to DIY your own masterful cookies?
This is no ordinary workshop. Besides being able to stuff your face with delicious cookies, you will also get to take home a kit of baking essentials so that you may recreate your designs and talents in your own home.
#Girlboss Kelsey Metsker will be visiting this one-time only workshop to teach you how to decorate your own cookie creations. Bonus, you will also go home with a kit, so you can recreate your masterpieces! Kit includes piping bags, pastry tips, couplers, cookie cutters and recipes!
During the workshop you will learn the craft, practice, then create a set cookies.
Modern Living Personalized Wreath
For December, we will be helping you create a modern foliage wreath, made with live, amazing smelling greenery. Sourced from a local nursery, as we believe in Kansas City products!
The wreath will be adorned with a simple one-word sentiment such as peace, merry, hope or noel…or you can choose a personalized one if you would like (simply add to comments when checking out) to give it the extra detail we here at The Makery KC love.
In a time when we feel so divided as a country, these sentiments seem to mean so much more. We hope these simple messages will make us feel and exude the meaning of the holidays, for it is what makes this time of year, our country and our communities worth celebrating.
PLEASE INCLUDE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION YOUR PREFERRED WORD TO INCLUDE ON RIBBON WHEN CHECKING OUT.
BONUS: You can choose to make a second wreath for an additional cost of only $20! Simply add to your cart before checking out!
Set of 4 Personalized Ornaments
One of our most popular workshops is back! Make a set of 4 ornaments to adorn your tree, give as hostess or teacher gifts, or personalize for loved ones.
For a twist this year, we are letting you choose between a set of glass ornaments or wood slice ornaments. They are both so cute we couldn’t pick just one…so we decided to let you do the picking!
This workshop is easy, fun and perfect to bring some friends to while you sip wine and make!
