Make & Create: DIY Workshops Take Over the Calgary Home + Design Show

Sep 16, 2016, 15:49 PM
It’s time to bring your Pinterest board to life - with a helping hand from the pros, no less! With so many projects to choose from in a series of hands-on workshops at the upcoming Calgary Home + Design Show, get ready to tap into your creative side and have fun.

Handcraft your next home decor piece at the Workshop Series curated by Calgary's favourite DIY blogger, Lacey Haskell of Feathering My Nest. You’ll get the chance to explore everything from FAT painting to embroidery, hand lettering to kokedama. Get into mixing natural florals and plants, learn to perfectly place stitches, discover hand lettering, and get painty with the great Canadian FAT Paint to create one-of-a-kind pieces.

If you’re looking to refresh your home for fall on a budget, Lacey and her fellow artisan workshop instructors will challenge attendees to get creative, and experience the joy of making and creating. Each workshop will encourage you to take your new skills beyond the show and think: what can you do with what you have?

During Lacey's workshop, you'll learn all the tips and tricks to working with FAT Paint and how to work with stencils. You'll leave the session with the confidence to tackle painting projects on your own and with a one of a kind piece that you can use for storage and display in your home.
