Dive into the whimsical world of plushie creation with your family! Ignite your creative spark in this enchanting workshop crafted for participants ages 7+. Have you ever wondered what to do with that lone sock or single mitten lying around? Join Teaching Artist golden collier as we transform those neglected items into charming, one-of-a-kind plushies using eco-friendly materials.

Crafting these unique sculptural 3D characters is an enduring way to capture a family memory. Our supportive space celebrates the uniqueness of handmade creations, where you’ll explore the basics of hand sewing, fabric cutting, and playing with simple patterns. Discover the magic of design as we use proportion, scale, color, shape, and balance to bring your plushies to life.

No need for prior experience—just come with some patience and the willingness to explore a new process! If you’d like, bring along your orphan socks or gloves to make a second plush during the workshop. Come join us for a day brimming with laughter, imagination, and the thrill of turning everyday objects into cherished memories!
