CRAFTMNL's 13 Days of Christmas Handmade Gift-Making Sessions

I think it's about time I learn how to personalize gifts that I give to my friends. There's nothing better than a personal touch added to an already thoughtful act, right? I saw Erin's article in WhenInManila about CRAFTMNL's 13 Days of Handmade Gift-making Sessions  and  immediately signed up for the Glass Etching workshop and received this e-mail from CRAFTMNL afterwards. Just spreading the good news!

YES! I want to make handmade gifts this Christmas! 

We’re spreading the handmade love!

Craft MNL comes to your neighbourhood, with handmade gift-making sessions across 7 lovely locations around Metro Manila. Always wanted to gift handmade, but in need of time, space, materials and guidance? These sessions are perfect for you. They cover glass etching (and preserve making), DIY journals, decorating yummy gingerbread cookies, gift wrapping and washi jewelry-making, handmade doll-making, screen printing Christmas-themed postcards, rubbercut printing, making crocheted Christmas ornaments and rubber stamping will be at Craft Coffee Workshop and 10A Alabama in New Manila, Pipino in Teacher’s Village (Quezon City), Edgy Veggy and Briggy Hall in Kapitolyo (Pasig City), the newly-opened Pipino along Jupiter street (Makati City), and Bungalow 300 in Alabang (Muntinlupa City) for our good folks further down south.

Read on to find out what handmade gift items you can give! Apart from being able to give handmade love this Christmas, you can amp up the good vibes by knowing that a part of the proceeds from this series of sessions goes to making the kids over at Virlanie Foundation smile a bit wider this holiday season. Check out the schedules below, and sign up to get ready for the holiday season armed with handmade love!
