My ‘MAKE & MINGLE’ sessions are a perfect way to enjoy a fun evening in our warmer months! Bring some friends and make an evening of it! You’ll assemble, sand and paint your own picnic table while having some laughs and giggles with friends as well as some new faces! Experience the joy that comes from making something with your own hands. You’ll use tools like the drill/driver, the orbital sander and the handheld router. No previous woodworking experience necessary. BYO bubbles (or beverage of choice) to enjoy and I’ll provide some yummy nibbles to share. I can’t wait to welcome you into my workshop!

Please note that this is a fully functioning commercial factory that I share with another maker. During our session together, there may be a lot of noise and ‘making’ that’s happening in the background. I hope you’ll appreciate the benefits of experiencing a real-life maker space and forgive the noise and mess that may come with it.
