6 creative Father's Day Gifts

What do you give a dad who has it all? Memorable experiences and handmade gifts!! We're celebrating the Dads this month with 6 great creative gift ideas for Father's Day. Check out all the options including a Kid's Gift Making Workshop, Dad & Me pottery wheel class, Woodworking Workshop and a Classic Mustang Painting Class to name a few.

Father’s Day Gift Making Workshop - Sunday, 13 June 2021

Want your kids to make something for Dad, but it to not look like it came from an episode of “Nailed it”? At this gift making workshop kids will have four projects to choose from that Dad’s will cherish and find useful:

- Drink/Tool Caddy ($55): This handmade wooden caddy made by a local woodworker can either be used for drinks, beers, tool or a desk organizer for pens. Kids will get to choose colour and customize it with words, names or sayings. - Craft Photo Frame ($25): This keepsake will be a nice one for Dad to keep on his desk or in a special place. - Dad Mug ($20): Kids can customise a ceramic mug using permanent markers. We will provide instructions on how to bake the mug when you get home to seal the colours in place and make it food safe. - Dad string art sign ($35): A pre-drilled/nailed sign that kids can choose custom string colours and even paint in custom colours will be sure to light Dad's heart up. - Paint pottery for Dad (price depends on size of piece - pay on arrival for this option): Choose any of our ceramic pieces to customize for Dad. If it’s painted at this event, we can guarantee collection of the piece before Father’s Day.

Instructors will be on hand to help guide your little ones as they make meaningful things for their fathers, along with tools, materials and aprons. We will have some light snacks at this event, but please feel free to bring any other drinks or snacks you wish. (Please note: quantities of each are limited, so offer is good as long as supplies last!)
