Art Workshops + Weaving with Kids

Happy New Year!!!  Looking back, one of our most favorite workshops for children included ~ wee Wondrous Weavings on Wooden Looms!  Oh my, the possibilities of textile design!  These mini-masterpieces were created by 6 – 10-year-old artists!  Our NEW ~ 2018 Winter Art Workshop Brochure is hot-of-the-press!  Workshops start early January, yes this week and they’re filling up fast, just hop on over to our simple SIGN UP!  If you’re looking for hands-on + mixed media + creative expression + an artful highlight to each week + a chance to meet new families and friends JOIN US + ENROLL TODAY!  You can also connect with us on Instagram @handmakery to keep an eye on what we’re creating in the studio from special art events to birthday parties, and of course everything in between at our NEW art studio located at 449 Main Street in Carbondale | CO in the heart of the Carbondale Creative District!


We loved using sleek + stylish ~ Hand Made Modern wooden looms and a wide array of natural + synthetic yarns and fibers!  Each artist created a color + texture pallet to inspire their individualized creation.  This process was calming, peaceful, and of course very social.  Let’s be honest, young artists didn’t want to stop the weaving process when each of the six-week workshops ended.  Looking forward to the next time we offer this hands-on workshop!  Love how unique each piece was to each artist.  Let’s just say personalities shined + showcased in the process and finished product!  If only these weaving could tell the story of the process and share the little conversations happening in the studio, oh wait, they do just that!  Look close and listen!  Think you’ll be amazed at the creations of these precious + little hands!

Okay, does this weaving pretty much match the personality of this artist!?!

After weavings were finished, artists added a wooden dowels + pom poms to accent their mini masterpiece!  My daughter’s weaving shines in the entry of the art studio and it makes me smile every time I see it!  A handmade treasure created by her little hands at age seven.  These are the things we’ll keep near and dear to our hearts as our children grow.
