Christmas is fast approaching and with it comes gift-giving opportunities. If you’re looking for something unique, or maybe you just want to get crafty but with help, then you might consider rolling up your sleeves and getting crafty at one of College Station’s unique DIY craft-making shops. These shops are just a short distance from your home at the Junction Cottages & Townhomes and provide all the supplies and teaching assistance you need to make some pretty cool things. Whether you keep them or end up gifting them to friends and loved ones is all your call!
3 Cool Craft-Making Shops Perfect for Christmas Present-Making
- Board & Brush Creative Studio. Board & Brush is a cool DIY wood sign workshop that teaches attendees various woodworking techniques along with how to apply custom graphics in order to create a one-of-a-kind wall art piece. This is a great place for those who want to go a step beyond paintbrushes and canvas. Here, you’ll learn how to distress, and, and stain wood in a fun and inviting atmosphere.
- Living Water Pottery Studio. Maybe you want to work something a bit more malleable? Like to get your hands dirty? Then you’ll want to head to College Station’s very own Living Water Pottery Studio. This is a really cool and unique place that has a lot to offer those interested in pottery arts. You can sign up for one-on-one classes and if you fall in love with the art form, you can pay weekly rental fees and have full access to equipment. There are also regular group events like mosaic workshops. You can sign up with a group or private party, just be sure to contact the shop to get on their mailing list to learn more.
- U-Paint-It. Don’t have enough time to learn the basics of ceramic before Christmas arrives? Then head down to Aggieland’s very own U-Paint-It pottery studio. Here, you can choose from a huge selection of ceramic pieces and then head to the studio where you can use the available art materials to design, paint, and customize the item. It’s a lot of fun but note that this place can get expensive so we recommend going on Wednesdays when studio fees are 1/2 price to save some cash.
For the Best Time, Make Visits to These Shops a Group Affair
While going it solo can be rewarding, doing these types of DIY classes and projects really are more fun when you make it a group affair. Invite your friends, classmates, and roommates to join you when you book your class. They probably have their own lists that need filling anyways! You might also want to keep these spots in mind for fun first dates…
