Craft Class at The Creative Cactus
This year has been amazing. As many of you may know, we started out 4 years ago as a blog called, "Connoisseur of Creativity." We loved that blog and will always remember where and how we began, but we decided with the new year that we needed a new name, new look and we needed to really start turning our dreams into reality. Texas Craft House was born in January and we hit the ground running - we are crafting more, blogging more, doing craft booths, opened an Etsy account, and started teaching craft classes at a local art and craft studio. This was a wonderful opportunity and we had so much fun teaching our first class on how to make Elisabeth's very popular Americana wreath.
The craft classes are held at an art and craft studio called The Creative Cactus inside of The Classy Cactus antique mall. The Creative Cactus offers painting classes, wreath classes, kids arts and craft classes, cake decorating and much more. Jennifer, the owner of the business, reached out to us and asked if Elisabeth and I would be interested in leading some of the classes as Texas Craft House.
This is a picture of and a link to the Americana wreath that Elisabeth made and posted last month. It has had a lot of popularity and we had many people asking for one of their own. We knew it would make for a great class and happy craft class customers.
We told Jennifer at the Creative Cactus the supplies we needed and she purchased them, set up the day and time, advertised and found the customers and hosted the event. Here is a picture of what was laid out for each person attending our class.
Once class began Elisabeth and I took turns teaching our crafters how to work with the burlap and make the ruffles around the wreath form.
While one of us was teaching the other was able to walk around and help as needed.
We had lots of family and friends come to support us, which made us so happy and thankful that everyone was so supportive.
After about 2 hours everyone left with a handmade Americana wreath. It was fun seeing everything come together and everyone happy with what they created.
We love The Creative Cactus and can't wait to come back and teach again.
