JB Knacker Christmas Bash ~ Saturday, November 12th

JB Knacker Christmas Bash
Saturday, November 12th

Remember Christmas as a kid…snow & sledding, skating & hot cocoa, family & food and midnight service & baby Jesus…JB Knacker hopes to keep those memories fresh and ready for this next generation!  Join us for a wonderful day!

Junk-Down to Christmas Workshop!

Sunday, November 13th
from 1:30-4:30pm at the shop.

Join us at JB Knacker to create a one-of-a-kind advent calendar.
All supplies provided.

It would be great if you could bring a basic craft kit (scissors, pencil, ruler and favorite adhesive). Beverages and yummy treats provided throughout the afternoon. This workshop will be in the trusty hands of resident paper artist Lara Gustafson w/ Brenda (owner of JB Knacker) assisting.

The Junk-down to Christmas calendar is made using a metal cafeteria tray and all sorts of vintage ephemera. This is a project-oriented workshop which means you will go home w/ a beautifully finished advent calendar to use this season or give as a wonderful gift. You will also learn some tricks on adhesion, staining & stamping and other fun handmade secrets!

The cost of the afternoon is $35.

You will also have the opportunity to gather all the supplies you need to make more of these at home ($15 each). You will find this project addictive…just ask our participants from last year’s workshop! To sign up, just call the shop at (515)233-2600 during business hours (Tues –Fri 1-6pm & Sat 10am-3pm). This workshop is held the day after JB Knacker’s big Christmas Bash Open House so the shop will be decked out and dripping in Christmas…fun!

Limit of 8 participants for this workshop so don’t delay!!
