DIYFLY Detroit is the third installment in an ongoing series of DIY workshops that SVNTH.SHOPPE teaches in various cities.
DIY while growing in popularity, isn't always as easy or cost effective as it looks online and too often we allow our DIY fails to discourage us. These workshops allow women to come together in a fun and social environment and learn how to successfully build sustainable home furnishings in a non-intimidating space. It is important to have basic know how in how to handle tools or just the general fixing of things, because the ability to rely on yourself is important. Overall, what women take away from this class is greater than how to use a drill, it's to believe in yourself and try something new, be willing to try, be willing to fail, be willing to succeed! Women who attend tend to feel encouraged and empowered when leaving the workshop.
The upcoming DIYFLYDETROIT workshops include a rustic full length standing mirror, and an entry way bench. SVNTH.SHOPPE chose these pieces because they're pieces that are classic additions to your homespace.
These classes are extremely beginner friendly, even if you've never held a hammer before you can feel comfortable coming, but all skill levels are welcome. All tools and supplies are provided.
