June DIY Classes

This month we held DIY classes for kids and ladies in Hood River, Pendleton and Friday Harbor! We made mason bee houses, hanging planters, picket frames and rustic tea shelves that everyone got to take home. Check out our Projects page to make your own by clicking on each photo for instructions.

June Kids DIY Picket Frame Workshop @ Marson & Marson Lumber

This month we were invited to do a special kids DIY workshop at Marson & Marson Lumber in Leavenworth, Washington! It was pretty exciting as we were part of their Grand Re-Opening event with other vendors and food. Did I say popcorn and shave ice? We had 22 kids come and make picket frames throughout the day and they all enjoyed putting their own special touch on their projects.

We also attended a Ladies Night event which included food, drinks and a scavenger hunt. They sure do know how to throw a party up there! The ladies were also interested in DIY projects so we might start planning some weekend workshops for both women and kids!

April Picket Frame DIY Workshops @ Tum-A-Lum Lumber

This month we not only offered a kids workshop in partnership with Tum-A-Lum Lumber in Hood River but also kicked off a brand new workshop series in Pendleton! Everyone created their own unique picket frame for Mother's Day. While the variable weather deterred some people from coming out in Hood River, our workshop in the Pendleton warehouse was packed! We will have to get another table built for next time... So heartwarming to feel the appreciation from a community that doesn't have many opportunities like this. And one of the girls told me she wants to be a builder when she grows up! Very inspiring to work with the next generation. If you were unable to attend the workshop you can download the plans here and build it at home. Stay tuned for our workshops in Hood River and Pendleton next month!
