Once again, I'm happy to show off my city's creative side with another DallasMADE post! This week I wanted to share some of the best places to learn a new crafty skill in Dallas.
Oil and Cotton //
This cool, neighborhood spot is the perfect place to take a class and try something new. The owners and instructors, Shannon Driscoll and Kayli House, opened their doors in September 2010 and have been a fixture in their community ever since. They offer a wide variety of classes taught by local professionals. From week long craft series, like DIY silkscreen printing
, to a crochet holiday garland workshop, Oil and Cotton is full of variety! Just take a look at their jam packed calendar
Make Shop & Studio //
Another local favorite, the Make Shop & Studio is located in the popular Bishop Arts District. They offer a huge selection of classes
, like sewing and embroidery basics. Also, they have an in store shop carrying all things handmade!
Shabby Sheep // No surprise here, but this is my personal favorite crafty place in Dallas. Remember when I went there and bravely confronted my fear of being a blogger in public? Well, inside this adorable little cottage, the ladies of Shabby Sheep offer classes ranging from beginner to experienced. They also have a lot of fun events, like their knitting club and movie nights, where you can sit back with your needles, some really awesome people, and enjoy the craft together.
So if you ever make it to Dallas, make sure you stop by these awesome places for some crafty inspiration!
