Spring Break Workshop with Karen Anderson at The Red Balloon

Spring break entertainment for kids aged 8-12 is here!  

With an ordinary embroidery hoop and some magical yarn, come learn circle weaving techniques to make a special dream catcher.  

Materials included in the class tuition are 6” embroidery hoop, tapestry needle, and assorted yarns.

Lunch for children will be provided by the Red Balloon Cafe and is included with tuition.  Please place your order with Karen when you arrive in the morning. Adults can also place their lunch order at that time and pay the Red Balloon separately.  

After lunch it is time to learn how to make super cool braids with just loops and your fingers. These braids make lovely friendship bracelets. Tuition includes everything you will need.

Our Spring Break workshops will be held right next door to our shop at The Red Balloon Cafe+Play.  Each participant will need an adult helper although one helper can attend to two children. If you would like to bring younger children to enjoy the playroom, please make sure to bring another adult helper to supervise them in the playroom.  Again, one adult helper can attend to two children. Our workshops will be taught in the classroom and we ask you to respect our need to have children supervised at all times.

Added perk: Younger children may play in playroom for $6 or play + eat lunch for $11.

Instructor Bio: I?ve always been a maker. I started out sewing beanbags on my mom?s sewing machine, graduated to plastic mesh and discovered wire beaded flowers in high school. I graduated from The Theatre School at DePaul University with a BFA in Lighting Design. During my college years, I learned to knit and that has been a passion ever since. My kids are all in school full time now and I have new-found time to spend creating. I?ve been designing fair isle hat patterns, making small looms and weaving tools in my mini-woodshop, and travelling downtown to work on our library MakerSpace?s laser cutter/engraver.
