Be The Holiday Hero With Exceptional Handmade Gifts

Local classes give you the skills to make a special something for your special someone

We’re all looking for great opportunities to impress family and friends over the holidays and what’s better than showing them how special they are with some handcrafted arts and crafts made specifically for them. Connect2Classes has pulled together an exceptional group of arts, crafts, and culinary instructors for classes and workshops you’ll leave with something truly unique to share.

Moxie & Oliver are masters in leathercraft, guided by leather expert Caitlin McNamara Sullivan, artist and designer. She has been a professional leather artist since 2004. Through beginning, advanced and private classes, Caitlin shares her knowledge of the materials, history and process, as well as her original leather crafting techniques with her students. Gift items include pouches, journals, and wallets that are just as unique as the person you’re gifting them to.

Check out classes and workshops from Moxie & Oliver.

Their fun, hands-on workshops focus on cultivating your confidence to make and care for projects like terrariums, soap making, kokedama (Japanese string gardens), Nordic-style himmeli (air plant mobiles) and more!
