Holiday Gift Guide: Best Gifts for Makers

Our round up of crowd-pleasing gifts for people who like to make things (and their loved ones) including workshops, kits, and books that inspire crafted downtime.

Bread Makers Bundle

Flourist is the go-to place for  traceable grains, beans, and flours. The Bread Baker's Bundle includes everything needed to make the loaf of their dreams. If you live in Vancouver you may have already indulged at their cafe which is full of delicious baked goods and good vibes.

Punch Needling Book

Arounna Khounnoraj is an artist, maker and an inspiration when it comes to fibre arts. Her latest book Punch Needle: Master the Art of Punch Needling Accessories for You and Your Home would make an inspiring gift for anyone who is interested in this approachable and beginner-friendly form of fibre art. If you live in Toronto, check out her cozy shop, Bookhu.

Wood Working Course

Wood working is having a serious moment and urban wood-working has become more and more accessible thanks to introductory courses available around the country. Project Weekend will be launching our wood-carving kit very soon but until then, there are great classes at MakerLabs, North Vancouver, and the Roundhouse in Downtown, Vancouver.

Complete Knitting Kit

A bit of shameless promotion for our knitting kits which come complete with all the tools and materials needed to make beautiful wearable items like hats, scarves, and more. Our projects are beginner and intermediate levels and are all designed to finish within a weekend!

Pottery Classes

There's something so satisfying and therapeutic about getting your hands dirty with a big pile clay. We like to think of it as tangible meditation. Pottery classes are in high demand and would make a very thoughtful gift for someone special this holiday season. Here are a few places we recommend looking into in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal.

Textile Workshop

If you live in Vancouver, Maiwa School of Textiles is the go-to spot for textile workshops. Their Spring 2020 calendar is full of inspirational and interesting classes and their Vancouver space is a lovely venue to get schooled on everything from natural dying to basket weaving, and so much more.

A Class at Homeroom 604

Homeroom 604 offers hands-on workshops in the Vancouver area. Evening workshops fall under three core subjects: Arts, Humanities, and Sciences. Next on the schedule? A triangle shelf workshop and beeswax food wraps.

Pom Pom Making Kit

If you love making pom poms, a normal plastic pom-pom maker just won't do! These wooden pom-pom makers resemble delicious treats like macarons and donuts. Use the pom for your hat or turn it into an adorable animal ornament or wreath. A tried-and-tested kid-friendly activity to engage your whole family.
