Workshops

 

Our workshops offer you an invaluable experience. We bring communities together through touch, textures, and making something with their hands. Students can look forward to discovering something deeper and more humbling than the usual art workshop. SweetBloomsCo’s workshops, demos, and events are designed to inspire, nourish --mentally and physically--and entertain. Above all, our mission is to bring diverse people together to share and make beautiful creations together.
