Workshops & Activities with Kerith House

Would you like a unique experience for your next gathering, birthday party, or team-building activity? Try a Chics with Tools Workshop, a non-threatening, no-judgment environment where participants can have hands-on experiences with tools and leave with finished projects.

Private Events

When we do not have a scheduled Chics With Tools Workshop, we are always open to hosting private events, which work similarly. Just gather a group totaling five and we will do whatever project you would like when it is convenient for you. Options include woodworking, home decor projects, sewing, barn quilts, and cake decorating. You will be provided with all materials and instructions to complete a project in one three-hour session. Feel free to bring your own snacks and beverages to sustain you while you bond with old friends and new ones while creating beautiful things for your home. Reach out for more information.
