In a world without colors, kaleidoscopes would be no more than useless binoculars and horses would be indistinguishable from My Pretty Ponies. Salute colorful, creative, and environmentally friendly fabrics with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of creative textile products or workshops at Kreatelier on Hope Street.
European friends Pernilla Frazier and Line Daems founded Kreatelier in 2007. Since then, solid local press has helped bring crafters from around the area into the shop. Its quaint quarters feature a diverse collection of product designs including bags, quilts, reusable gift wraps, and various accessories, all enhanced by crafty workshops that educate interested art architects. Rampant pencil collections can be put to rest with large cotton pencil cases ($18), which are washable, rollable, and feature 11 pockets, while manicure and pedicure cases ($15) help keep tools and other grooming paraphernalia from escaping. Keep rebellious flocks of hair at bay with a brightly colored headband ($8), elegantly wrap bottles of precious fermented fruits inside wine bags ($10), or organize a messy back seat with the car-seat organizer ($40), which withstands abuse and the effects of time travel.
For arts-and-crafts students and experts alike, Kreatelier offers a mish-mash of small workshops for children and adults. Past classes have constructed quilted potholders ($50), decorative pillows ($45), and beady necklaces ($20). This summer, a variety of kids classes are available ($25/hour for private, $20/hour for classes of two or more), including courses in making an apron, a messenger bag, or a Mod Podge vase. No skills are required, and materials are supplied.
This Groupon is valid in-store only.
