A Classroom is Born.

New classroom space at Fresh Heirlooms

Even without tables, our classroom space is already an ideal spot for crafting!

The room in our building that once held our bicycles, empty cardboard boxes, and an old lab table on nasty red carpet is just about ready to seat you in a Fresh Heirlooms workshop!

Join us by appointment beginning in October to learn how to “sandblast your trash.”  Bring glass jars, bottles, and vessels from your recycle bin or overflowing kitchen cupboards and learn to create permanent, original designs on them.

These handmade and functional works of art make great holiday gifts!   Learn more here!

The cat is out of the bags!

What's in the bag -- fabric, fabric, fabric!!

What's in the bags? Tons of fabric swatches, samples, and scraps -- all waiting to be transformed into inspiring green gifts and home accents galore!

THANKS TO SOME SPECIAL FRIENDS IN THE WINDOWARE INDUSTRY, we are loaded to the brim with scrap fabric!!!

Production is already underway on great, green gift items made from funky, mod, and elegant fabrics otherwise bound for the landfill!

Fresh Heirlooms is planning several events for the fall and holiday-shopping season.  Stay tuned to see what fabric goodies (and other fun, repurposed home accents) you can find in our new showroom and when our doors will be open.

If you just can’t wait, contact us to schedule an appointment to view our showroom today!  Or, if you’re feeling crafty, ask about booking a workshop by appointment!  We offer a range of custom, creative-reuse workshops for adults, families, and children.
