Introduce her to a new medium with pottery classes

If she’s someone always wanting to try something new, treat her to a pottery class. Here, she can learn the basics, such as how to make a mug in a hand-building class or take a stab at wheel throwing in a beginner’s workshop. Then she can decide for herself if it’s something she’d like to pursue further. 

Pottery is much easier to learn when you have a knowledgeable instructor by your side. Luckily, these beginner classes are taught by experienced instructors in an easy-going and informative environment. You’ll learn all the basics, while also feeling at ease asking questions, laughing off your mistakes, and trying something new. What more could you ask for in a learning experience?

You can sign up too because a crafting day is always better with a little company. This gift will go much farther than just unwrapping, as you’ll get to spend a few hours of quality time together learning something new. An engaging pottery workshop and the comforting company of a friend or loved one will make for an unforgettable gift!

Get curious with baking classes

For curious minds, baking classes are an easy solution. Once you learn basic baking techniques, you will open the door to a whole new world of possibilities. Baking is both a science and an art, and there are plenty of opportunities to explore, recipes to learn, and ways to challenge yourself. From bagel making to cake decorating or homemade croissants to vegan desserts, there are so many avenues to try. 

If she loves cozy evenings with warm treats, has a sweet tooth, or tends to always sign up to bring a dessert to the potluck, treat her to a baking class where she can dive further into this inspiring hobby. With expert guidance and tips from a professional baker, she’ll be able to refine her baking skills and soon be able to create and modify new recipes to add a personal touch.

Baking classes are also a practical hobby. Homemade baked goods make thoughtful gift ideas for the holidays, housewarmings, or just to show someone you care. Not to mention, your house will always smell like freshly baked goods!

Cozy up with an online candle making class

If your girlfriend, friend, or mom is more of a homebody, there are a variety of online workshops that will let her dip her toes into the craft world without leaving the comfort of her home. Treat her to an online candle-making class, where she’ll receive a DIY kit delivered with all the supplies she will need to make her homemade candles. Choose between a variety of candle types from beeswax to wood wicked candles! She can create her own custom scents that will add some light and beautiful fragrance to her home. This will go much farther than a store-bought candle, as she’ll have the experience to remember and all the supplies and knowledge to continue on her journey if she chooses to pursue the craft further. 

This cozy craft idea is great for anyone, as it’s an easy-to-do activity. In addition, she’ll have an experienced instructor to guide her through the process via Zoom, so there’s no need to worry about missing a step.

Encourage her to show off her style with handmade jewelry

While basic beading classes are a delightful time, there is so much more to explore with jewelry making. Try silversmithing or wire wrapping, or even delve into working with trendier materials seen on social media like resin and polymer clay jewelry. You don’t need to be crafty to try out this easy craft. You’ll have a friendly instructor to guide you through the process. 

The great thing about jewelry making is that you can create your handmade jewelry to match your unique style. If she is the most stylish person in your friend group or loves to accessorize with unique pieces, she’ll love a jewelry class where she can customize jewelry and create something to show off her personality. 

Not only do jewelry classes make for thoughtful gifts for her, but handmade jewelry also makes for a meaningful token of appreciation. She’ll soon be able to create jewelry pieces for every occasion and have some left over to gift to her friends and family! 

Find adventure in a painting class

Painting might be an activity you left behind in your grade school years, but these exciting and interactive painting classes will surprise you! From watercolors to acrylic pouring, there are many unique painting classes, that go beyond a basic “how to.”

Gift her a Paint and Sip class, and join in on the fun, for a night of casual wine sipping and light-hearted painting. Or gift her a DIY watercolor kit, where she can explore her imagination at home and paint colorful storybook-like paintings. You can also sign her up for an abstract art class, such as paint pouring, where she can customize her own marbled charcuterie board. In these beginner painting classes, not only will she leave with a memorable experience, but also handpainted art! 

Painting classes don’t need to be a drag. So add some color to her day with one of these hands-on painting classes for a gift experience she’ll remember for years!
