​Why just buy a holiday gift for a loved one when you can actually create something and learn a new skill at the same time?

That’s the mantra at The Makery, Jane Watson’s creative hub on El Paseo Lane, a “community handcrafting space” where people can gather around a community worktable and learn an array of creative pursuits, from leather working and bookbinding to weaving, floral arrangement and calligraphy. On Saturday, Dec. 16 from 12-3pm, the Makery is hosting a “Make Your Way Into the Holidays” event featuring 30-minute classes on how to make your own festive felt garland.

The $15 class is open to all, both children and adults, and it starts every hour from 12-4pm. The event will also feature hot apple cider, sweet treats, festive holiday lights, a photo booth and pop-up shops from an array of local vendors.  

The 411: The Makery hosts a “Festive Felt Garland” class and holiday event with hot apple cider, sweet treats and live holiday music. MORE INFO.
