Learn to DIY Like a Pinterest Pro at the Make-It, Take-It Feature

Jan 9, 2016, 22:30 PM
Admit it, you likely have a Pinterest folder overflowing with DIY crafts that you’d love to see in your house, but haven’t found the time to sit down and tackle. We’ve got your back, with the Make-It, Take-It station.

Make-It Take-It Workshops

As you peruse the 125,000 square feet of displays and vendors at the Philly Home + Garden Show, you’ll have 12 opportunities throughout the weekend to not only learn how to do a specific craft, but actually complete it under the watchful guidance of a home decor expert. You’ll even be able to take it home with you as inspiration for your next DIY project.

“We hope that Make-It, Take-It will prove to those who participate that they really do have the time and the ability to create these personal touches for their homes,” said Show Manager Alyson Caplan.

Make-It, Take-It is sponsored by Impact Thrift Stores, RYOBI, Superior Renovations and The Painted Home, Sweet Water Woodworks.

Each session will be limited to 15 people on a first-come, first-served basis.
