Holiday Pop-up Workshop

When: Sun., Dec. 11, 1-4 p.m. 2016

If our Style Issue's spotlight on local makers last week has you frowning at those rolls of shiny foil Hallmark paper moldering in your closet—and the mass-market merch you're likely to stuff inside them—then this free holiday pop-up workshop on the second-floor mezzanine of the Durham Hotel is the perfect chance to boost your wrap game. A sideline to the Durham Patchwork Holiday Market, which runs from noon to five on Sunday at the Durham Armory, this hands-on event features a twenty-minute embroidery workshop with Fiona Podes of TangleWild Designs, in which you can learn to make your own ornament, and a custom gift-tag station courtesy of Spoonflower, which prints the patterns found in the embroidery kits. Buy stuff at the Patchwork Market and use this stuff to gussy it up, and cut out the middlemen between beautiful gifts and the hands that made them in your holiday shopping. —Brian Howe
