“Enjoyed a creative afternoon for my birthday and loved every minute of it. Chris showed us the assembly basics which were easier than I expected. She then guided us through the design process. I came away with really beautiful & unique pieces and a memorable afternoon shared with my girlfriends. I will definitely be back for more workshops. “ Beth
