    Upcycled Basket Weaving

    I enjoyed learning this craft project. I thought it was on the expensive side for what it entailed.

    Great! The teacher and location were perfect! Wish the crochet hooks came with the class price. Happy I took the class though and plan to take more!

    Rag Rugs

    Had a lot of fun learning how to create a rug from t-shirts! A DIY project I would never think about and a great way to turn old tshirts in to something new! Also loved learning the basics of crochet to turn in to other projects.

    Jewelry Making: Reclaimed Wood Rings

    This class was excellent!! Gina was so helpful & Jenny at Perennial was knowledgeable and helpful too. This class allowed for total creativity and room to experiment...there were a couple varieties of wood to choose from and who doesn't like power tools! This class is one that a true beginner could manage or someone that has had experience with wood working.

    Whittling Hooks and Needles

    I brought my 13 year old grand daughter in for this class. It was fabulous. The instructor, Theresa, was so good at guiding her while giving her the opportunity to make her own decisions. She learned how to use the tools and was so proud of the crochet hooks and needles she made. I recommend this class for adults and children.

    Crafts & Cocktails

    This class was really fun! My husband and I attended in an effort to do something different and we found it! The class flow was laid-back and fun, but we also were productive building a bottle-opener, making coasters from coffee bags, and learning how to properly mix a tequila cocktail! We enjoyed meeting people in class and checking out Perennial - I definitely recommend this class!

    Crafts & Cocktails

    This class included alcohol so what is not to like? We learned to make a cocktail made a coaster and a bottle opener. The coaster and bottle opener were both extremely easy to make but it was still fun. It was a good mix of people and an overall enjoyable experience.

    Upcycled Bird Houses

    Such a fun class not only to learn a bit about birds, but also to learn about tools and woodworking. Bonus: the birdhouses are super cute and act as a long-term reminder of a fun Sunday afternoon with friends, new and old.

    Intro. to Machine Sewing: Aprons

    I had an amazing time taking this class and would suggest it to anyone looking to learn the basic skills in seeing with a machine and cutting fabric from a pattern. I have never used a sewing machine before and the instructor was very knowledgable and helpful in teaching and guiding me through the process. And I got a great looking apron at the end of it!

    Eco-friendly Furniture Restoration Demo

    Class was informative for beginners on eco friendly paintbremoval and stains. I love the building/place where the class is held and idea...just don't love the neighborhood especially coming alone after dark. It is iffy.

    Jewelry-Making: Reclaimed Wood Rings

    This teacher did a great job all around! I've always been nervous about using power tools, but she made me feel comfortable and safe the entire time. I also not have an incredible new ability to make these rings on my own. I'm really happy with the class and how my ring turned out!

    This class was a blast! I learned some new skills and tools in a fun, casual environment with an instructor who was eager to explore and experiment with us while successfully imparting the core objectives of the class. I will definitely take other classes with Perennial!

    Sewing Machine Basics

    Loved this class! The instructor was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer our burning questions. There were a variety of machines to use which is awesome because I was able to operate one similar to mine. That said, it's also pretty hands on. I left feeling confident I wasn't going to break my machine or sew over my fingers. I would totally suggest this class over a boring YouTube video any day!

    Wine Bottle Reuse

    The teacher was wonderful, very knowledgable, patient and thorough. The class was harder than I expected. I am happy with my take home project, but we were exhausted at the end of the night! It wasn't the fun relaxing girls night that I anticipated but I definitely learned a lot have 2 cool wine bottle planters to display at home.

    Good class to do with friends or a date. Fun environment! Do wish we had more colors for the bar towels and to paint our beer flights. Would also have been nice to make the entire beer flight ourselves (we only were able to drill one hole) however I'm sure it was time constraints! Overall great time!

    This was my first time attending dabble event. I had an amazing experience dabbling. I thought this experience was unique in the sense i learned to how to make a cocktail using bartender tips. One of the tips shared was Bar tending: 101 start with the least quantity ingredient to the larger quantity. The bartender also suggested using ice that creates perfect balance of chilling the drink but not watering drink down for best quality taste. Additionally we drilled holes and painted custom wood flight planks. I really had a great experience. In fact I have suggested to several co-workers and friends to checkout dabble.com for pop up and start up local events to attend for recreation and entertainment. Thank you Jeremy Idleman for recommending this to me and my friends.

    Fun evening out - not long (~20 min) at each of the 3 craft stations but allowed enough time to get creative. Time was provided to go back to a station if you wanted to finish something. We made a flight board (for beer tastings), printed a tea towel, and mixed a cocktail. Fun atmosphere! Would absolutely recommend.

    This was a great evening of fun. The wood project was a little simple but time does not allow for anything too complex. The towel was a great addition to the wood project and allowed for more personal creativity! The cocktail was interesting, but, we did not care much for the taste. Others, however, thought it was great- considering they drank an entire punch bowl of it! Making your own cocktail was pretty fun though! Did not expect the snacks ( soft pretzels and dip & popcorn, along with refreshing citrus water). The evening was very enjoyable and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Love the concept of art awareness. I will be looking for more things to dabble in at Perenial ,as well as, on Dabble!

    I found myself with a new sewing machine so I thought I had better learn how to use it. Voila', Dabble via Perennial had a class! I love Dabble classes so of course I signed up.
