Stop to smell the flowers—stay to save the bees! Join Spriggly’s Beescaping at the Center for Craft for an informational session and workshop about native bees in our area, and how we can support them. Participants will learn about native bees and plant species, see examples and experiment with the materials used to make a Native Bee Habitat for their rural or urban environments, and all participants will have the opportunity to make their very own ‘seed bomb’ to take home and plant in their own home gardens.
Cost to attend the workshop is $5 per person (children 12 and under are free). The informational session is free & open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Diamond Brand Gear and In Blue Handmade will also be supporting the Center for Craft's Native Bees Workshop with Spriggly's Beescaping by welcoming the workshop attendees into their Micro-Factory to make a Leather Key Fob, Cuff or Flask with one of many bee stamp options to choose from to stamp your handmade product. At the end of the class, you leave with your very own creation (all materials provided). Bring your own sewing machine to learn more about your tool or use one of ours at the micro-factory. At the end of the class enjoy refreshments and an opportunity for additional Q&A with their master sewing wizards. All proceeds benefit the Center for Craft.
The Center for Craft is expanding, adding an additional 7,000 ft² of program space within our historic 1912 building in downtown Asheville! During this time our building will be closed — Reopening Nov 16, 2019. Our Grants and Fellowships programs will continue to operate on a normal schedule.Close X
