Assembly: gather+create has a holiday treat perfect for all you procrastinators out there. During this festive hands-on event, you’ll create five handmade, unique gifts to give to the special people in your life (or you can keep one or two for yourself… we won’t tell). And don’t worry, we’ve designed these projects to guarantee your success in making things you’ll be proud to give!

  • Creatively dye leather in bold colors to make a set of beverage coasters
  • Etch a design on a pint or cocktail glass to make custom functional art
  • Work with vintage fabric and fragrant lavender to create a sachet to scent linens and drawers
  • Design a classy catnip pillow that will be irresistible to your favorite feline
  • Mix up an all natural body scrub to pamper winter skin

You’ll even print your own custom gift wrap for the perfect presentation. We’ll also have some special holiday surprise treats on hand too! Register today — you’re not going to want to miss this.

  14. Marie December 8, 2016 at 6:14 pm #

    Not only am I a proud (but rather untalented) DIY’er, but I’m currently unemployed and looking to get creative with some holiday gifts on the cheap!

  15. Miranda T. December 8, 2016 at 6:35 pm #

    Would love to win! Need gifts, not much $ with recent medical emergencies, and prefer unique hand crafted presents!

  21. JoVonne Mason December 9, 2016 at 10:02 am #

    This year I had a string of really bad luck to include being hit by a car & losing my job so this would enable me to be able to give to others this holiday season!

  22. Mary Campbell December 9, 2016 at 10:29 am #

    This would be such a fun way to make gifts for my family!

  23. Cheyenne Terbrueggen December 9, 2016 at 11:32 am #

    Crafts! Yay! Would be perfect for the holiday season.

  25. Jennifer December 9, 2016 at 6:11 pm #

    I decorate my tree with beer cans (no joke). This would really class up my diy gift giving!

  26. Polli Kristina December 10, 2016 at 7:11 am #

    This would be quite an experience for me. I like to learn new things. Plus I think it would make some really nice & unique gifts. I’m hoping to get the chance. Thank you! ❄⛄

  27. Erin December 11, 2016 at 12:09 am #

    I’m always looking to learn new craft skills & meet people! I’m relatively new to the Portland area so this sounds like fun social crafting!

  28. Cris December 11, 2016 at 5:36 pm #

    I would love to pick-up a new craft & make heartfelt gifts for friends & family.

  30. Haylee December 12, 2016 at 12:15 am #

    This is such a great idea! I can already see which people in my family I would give the gifts to, and definitely am feeling like I need to find a creative outlet. I would love to be chosen!
