Houston Makerspace will be at Pop Shop Houston November 29th and 30th, 2013!

 

Our double-wide booth will be part-boutique, part-classroom! Shop products from By Claire Webb, Willow and Whale, Dear Cormorant, Houston Makerspace, and more. Stick around for a workshop and make holiday gifts for your friends and family! All of our workshops are family-friendly, and children are welcome.

Workshops run every hour on the hour, rotating between four subjects. All proceeds from the workshops and 50% of the boutique will benefit Houston Makerspace!

We have released a few spots in each workshop for pre-registration.  The remaining spots are saved for registration at the event. See below for the workshop schedule and descriptions.

Pop Shop Houston is more than just a craft market - it's an independent art and music festival with cocktails, bands, activities and more! Find the Houston Makerspace booth and hang out on our couch, take a class, shop our wares and support your local makers!  See you in November!

Custom Textile Design using Fabric Stamping

In this workshop, Lindsay Burns of Willow and Whale will teach you how easy it is to make stamps out of nothing more than acrylic blocks and craft foam to create custom, professional-looking textile designs! Once learned, this technique can be used to create your own custom fabric to use in pillows, upholstery, clothing and accessories! Each student will take home their own custom-printed tote bag.

This workshop is kid-friendly! Students of all ages welcome!


Custom Embossed Holiday Cards

Learn this simple 3-step process from Cecelia White of Houston Makerspace and make a variety of holiday-themed cards to give to loved ones this season! Cecelia will teach you the proper way to ink a stamp and how to use embossing powders and heat tools. Your designs are limited only by your imagination! Students will take home as many cards as they can make in an hour!

This workshop is kid-friendly. Students of all ages welcome!
