For our last Urban Craft Camp calligraphy workshop we partnered with The Library Shop located inside the new San Diego Central Public Library. We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our workshop, the room was just gorgeous and it had the best lighting we could have asked for. The new library is just magnificent. If you haven’t had a chance to visit it yet, please do so asap. You will fall in love with it. And while you are there, please stop by The Library Shop on the first floor :) They have all sorts of goodies. It’s truly a one-stop shop for books, jewelry, children’s merchandise, gifts and art.
These workshops are a lot of work to put together but at the end of the day they are so rewarding. From all the friends and connections we make, skills and crafts we learn, there is so much goodness happening in one room :) Making and mingling is addicting :)
I want to thank Sarah Olson for taking pictures of the event for us, and Marcie from Red Star Ink and Wendelline Papers for donating some cute goodies to all the attendees. Friends, if you live in San Diego or nearby and would like to attend one of the Urban Craft Camp workshops you can be added to the mailing list right here. Or you can follow us on social media under @urbancraftcamp. To see more pictures of our calligraphy workshop please go here. Cheers! Ana

Our talented friend and graphic designer Marcie of Red Star Ink agreed on leading the workshop, so we knew we were onto something special. The event quickly sold out and we had a full house, with 32 attendees, making it quite an enjoyable morning!

A few months ago Jen of My Three Sons and I held a fun “String Art” workshop at her lovely home in South Park, San Diego. It was so successful and fun that we’ve decided to continue the concept of making and mingling. After a lot of brainstorming we are excited to introduce you to “Urban Craft Camp” – creative craft workshops to inspire the maker in all of us. Our next class will be held at Progress, a modern boutique shop in South Park, San Diego and we’d love if you could join us for a great morning of crafting, mingling, and treats. We’ll show you how to create a one-of-a-kind tote bag incorporating hand printing, embroidery and other surface design techniques. Come Make + Mingle with us! Space is very limited so please go here to reserve your spot.
If you are interested in becoming involved and promoting your business please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for creative minds to partner with.
Logo and flyer were designed by talented Marcie of Red Star Ink in case anyone is wondering :)

What a fun time we had at the Valentine’s event at the San Diego Anthropologie store. We had a full house of darling ladies ready to craft a Valentine garland that we created especially for the event.
Refreshing drinks and aren’t those jars adorable?
Still dreaming of those tablecloths.
Beautiful flower arrangements.
Everyone got to take this lovely goodie bag home full of goodies that a few of my local sweet friends and shop owners kindly donated to the event.
Sweet Conni helping me to prepare for the event.
Happy camper :)
Our face painting station was a big hit.
The sweet Anthropologie San Diego store managers, my big bump and I :)
So many cute faces.
and fun ladies :)

I am excited to share that Anthropologie has asked me to host their Valentine craft event at their San Diego store in Fashion Valley! I love what they do and have been a huge fan of the store for the longest time.

Join us for an afternoon of lovely crafts, mingling, fun packages and yummy sweets – and it’s all free folks. Are you getting excited? Spaces are limited, so be sure to RSVP here as soon as you can so you don’t miss out on the fun. Hope to see lots of you on the 9th at the Fashion Valley Anthropologie in San Diego! xoxo, ana
