Workshop Samplers

We can't meet in person to do DIY but we can dream.... Here are some workshops we've done in the past and hope to do again soon!

Make- an- Indoor Water Garden
It's like having a plant aquarium! You'll get all the materials needed to make a small water garden and also learn how to take care of your new plant. Limited to 30 students; pre-registration strongly encouraged to guarantee spot. Part of DePaul's Earth Week celebration! DePaul students only!

Create a Nature Print

You've always wanted to create a "cyanotype," you just didn't realize it! This is a process in which you will use the sun's rays and natural materials to make a blue print that looks like a silhouette art print. If there is time, you will then have the opportunity to add color to make it your own creation!

DIY Natural Facial Masks

Make your own facial mask to take with you, including natural deep clean, acne, energizing, or exfoliating recipes. While you're at it, get a free 10 minute chair massage, check out other wellness resources and get raffle tickets for prizes including massage, beauty treatments and products!
