The cottage is moving right along, and soon we will have a great new spot to hold workshops. And we already have a great schedule for July! School might be out for the summer, but that doesn’t mean that all learning has come to an end. Grab a friend and come spend some time at Deep Creek Vintage, learn a fun new skill, or polish up your talents. Take a look at some of the things we’re offering:
Soap making is Sunday, July 17th and begins at 10am . Learn the basics of soap making when you create a batch of all natural soap. All supplies and ingredients will be provided as you get a hands-on lesson. Because soap does take two days to cure before it can be turned out, you will leave with a bar from a pre-made batch, but all the skills you need to make many more bars right in your home kitchen. This class also covers the basics of essential oils. This class is hosted by Susan of the Vintage Farmstead, and is fours hours in length. All materials are included in the class cost of $40.
Another of our popular classes, create you own upcycled pallet wood serving tray, is back! This class is July 21st and begins at 6pm. This class is great for all skill levels. Design a one-of-a-kind piece as you learn new painting techniques under the instruction of a resident artist. While the construction will be handled by the instructor, this class introduces participants to the elements of designing and the tools required to construct these trays. Materials are included in the class price, as well as hands-on instruction. This class lasts approximately three hours, and is hosted by Cate of Cate’s Boutique. The class cost is $45.
We have a brand new vendor at Deep Creek Vintage, Nancy of Simple Joy Design, and she will be teaching some great floral design tips in a fun class that is premiering July 23 at 10am. In Basic Floral Design you will tie a bow, arrange flower in a vase and make a tea cup topiary. Learn to turn a grocery store bouquet into a beautiful floral vase arrangement and a basic topiary in a tea cup. You will also be using fresh items from the garden. Learn about the meaning of many of your favorite flowers and herbs, as well as, what you might have growing in your home garden that will make lovely cut flowers to accent your decor. You will need scissors, hand trimmers, and a coffee cup or teacup, but all other materials are provided in the class fee of $40.
Another new class features pallet wood, but this time to create a unique wall hanging to display your favorite picture. The frame hangs suspended so that you can easily switch the picture, too. This class is great for all levels, and all supplies are included in the class fee of $40. You will leave with a finished product, ready to display on your all.
