Personal Craft and Sewing Workshops – makes a perfect gift too!

I love putting together a sewing or a craft workshop just for you! They are sort of a combination between a birthday party and a girls night out. The workshop takes place at Das Kreativlabor or your house or a place of your choice and can either be a group of kids (age 5+), teens or it can be a group of adults.

All it takes is finding 4-6 friends/participants and we can start a group.

Cost: 20.- SFR per person/hour, I will supply all the materials (some projects may have an extra supply cost)

Timeframe: Approximately 2 hours

Total time: 3 hours (1/2 hour of set up,  2 hours of crafting, 1/2 hour clean up)

You get to pick out the project– it can be a longer project that takes several weeks or one that we can finish in one session.

She creates an environment that encourages the love for crafting, creativity and learning.
