Her friends had an amazing idea for this Sprinkle, to hold a Refind Salvage Rustic Sign Workshop. First of all, for those who don't know, a Sprinkle is kind of a low key baby shower when someone is having their second (or third or fourth...) baby.
I have always wanted to do one of these workshops and it was so much fun! First of all, it was held at the Elora Centre for the Arts. This used to be Elora Junior Public School, which was where I went to school until Grade 4. It was so neat to go back into the building, and actually create my sign in my old Grade 2 classroom! This building is really neat and is a great atmosphere for these workshops. It's an old building, with nice hardwood floors and huge rooms. It has so much character. The room was set up with a big table in the middle for our signs, but also had a nice little corner with some seating where Crystal could open some gifts.
It takes about 3 hours to make the signs, but there are breaks in there as you need to wait for paint to dry and such. So we could chat and snack and take our time. It's actually really low key, and although the Type A in me found some aspects stressful, it really was pretty simple. Mandy, the owner of Refind, made the whole process fun and easy! Everyone's signs turned out really well!
The great part about these workshops is that you get to pick your own sign. So you aren't stuck with something that you really don't want because everyone can choose a sign that suits their home or their personality.
I would highly recommend attending one of these workshops with a friend or two or if you have a lot of friends then you can book your own private workshop like we did!
