Making Magnets for Mom this Mother's Day

Get ready, kids! If you drop by on Saturday, May 12th from 12-4pm, join us for a fun crafting event in-store. On the day before Mother's Day, we will be running a DIY magnet making event for kids of all ages!


DIY Crafting with Local Artist Mathilde Fabry

Our host and teacher is local artist, Mathilde, of Petit LouLou. Mathilde is an animator, plush toy maker, and mother to a five year old boy. She teaches children's sewing classes at Bird on a Wire every few months, providing kids with the essential skills of basic stitching and button sewing. Learn more about these classes.

On May 12th, every attendee will have the chance to create their own personalized thumbprint magnets to take home to Mom!

Using inks, crayons, and felts, Mathilde will help you transform your prints into fun and crazy images. Let your imagination run wild as your thumb doodles become zany animals, aliens, or your family pet. You can even create an entire thumb family using a set of prints!

Quick and Easy Magnet Making

With a magnet press on site, getting your magnets assembled takes less than five minutes from start to finish. Quick and easy, this is a great activity for young kids, and families taking a Saturday stroll down Main St.

No sign up is required, everyone is free to drop in between 12-4pm. Magnets are $6 each, and there is no limit to how many you choose to make!

We hope to see you and your family on May 12th! Come and craft with us!
