VENUE: Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, 13325 Beach Ave, Marina del Rey, CA, 90292
A creative and experiential workshop co-hosted with Transition Culver City to inspire you for the holiday season. Enjoy conversation while learning to make simple gifts that are fun to create and lovely to receive! This year we’re offering instruction in homemade beauty products, fruit preserves, and lovely fabric baskets made out of “upcycled” bed sheets.
All-natural moisturizers that don't contain any objectionable chemicals are expensive and hard to find. Making your own is surprisingly easy and costs only pennies. Michele de la Rosa teaches you a fun and easy recipe for a great moisturizer that contains only a few food-grade ingredients. Small glass bottles will be available for a modest donation, or bring your own containers and then decorate them for gifts!
|Sample Westside Produce Exchange|
Naomi Curland, founder of the popular Westside Produce Exchange, demonstrates how to make holiday preserves. Using fruit from the Exchange and jars donated by reDiscover Center, you'll learn cooking tips and canning techniques, and then decorate your jar and take home a taste of homemade jam.
You won't believe how simple it is to make a gorgeous coiled-fabric basket using a zig-zag stitch on a sewing machine. If you'd like to make a basket, bring cotton or cotton blend fabrics, scissors, and plenty of cotton blend clothesline and some binder clips for this project. If you want to prepare in advance, cut fabric into 1 x 18" (or longer) strips, on the bias.
We welcome you to bring other crafting materials such as glitter, ribbon, lace, hot glue guns, and fabric!
Children are welcome with supervising adults. Materials fee by donation of $5-10.
