Bow-Making Clinic

How a package looks is almost as important as what’s inside—when it comes to a gift package, that is! Learn how to make beautiful bows for many uses—holiday gifts, wreaths, fruit or gift baskets, mantles and ornaments. There really is an art to making a bow, and once you learn the tricks of the trade, making a beautiful bow for any occasion or to beautify anything can be easy and fun! After we cover some basic bows, we will get more creative, making ribbon roses, adding ornate “tails,” and making flowers out of twine! And your bow creations go home with you.

$20 Member, $25 Non-member
(Cost includes supplies, but feel free to bring any ribbon that you would like to use.)
