The sessions, which 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.
