What Great Things Can You Buy at the Craft School in Altadena?
By LAUREN SHARKEY
The Craft School is a place where you can learn to discover your talent for making some great stuff, but it is also a place where you can purchase some great stuff as well.
A number of items have been made using vintage fabric. These include bags, coasters and hand towels. There’s also some great gifts for children such as embroidery kits and doll sewing kits,which will keep them busy for days making some great crafts they can pass on to their kids sometime in the future.
If you’re into the art of writing, why not snap up a handmade journal? Or peruse through the selection of vintage-style postcards and notepads, and pick some up lending your communication that air of nostalgia that those receiving will appreciate.
Artists (or those of you wishing you were artists) can also pick up a variety of supplies from watercolors to ink pens perfect for a spot of calligraphy, or a beautiful watercolor painting.
And don’t forget to spruce up your kitchen with a crocheted egg cup, or mini clay pot, which can have all kinds of uses and help make some of the ordinary things about your home look a little more rustic and down home.
Of course, you’re always welcome to attend one of Craft School’s many workshops. Held regularly throughout each month, these can teach you everything from embroidery to bookbinding.
Craft School’s shop is open Tuesday to Friday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., so come in and enjoy shopping around for some great gift items, or purchase for yourself so that you have what you need to make some excellent craftwork.
Craft School is located at 2351 Lincoln Ave, in Altadena. For more information call (626) 639-3014 or visit www.craftschoolaltadena.com.
