Make YOYOs and Laser Etched Valentines Workshop with TAIT Design Co.


Make a sweet (YOYO) for your sweet (HEART)!

Or even better...make Valentines and YOYOs together. This workshop would be a super fun date!

Hosted by Matt Tait and Audrey Elkus from TAIT Design Co.

Sunday February 11th from 1 to 2:30pm

During this workshop, Matt and Audrey will walk you through the process of screen printing multiple colors and patterns onto wooden yoyos, laser-etching a Valentine's wooden card, and then assembling and finishing each off with a matching Valentine's day box! They'll even be teaching a few yoyo tricks!

You will move around the studio from one station to the next, including moving from the laser cutter to screen printing, putting in the yoyo bearings to tying strings – all to create a unique design for yourself or a sweetie. 

You will leave with your own, customized Valentine's YOYO, wooden card, and matching pattern box! Come one, come all and share some fun, creative times together. All the patterns, supplies and materials will be prepared in advance. All you need to do is show up, get creative and have fun!

  • Age 13 and up.
  • No experience necessary.
  • All materials are provided. 
  • Refreshments will be served!
  • POST will be open before and after the workshop for a bit of browsing and Valentine shopping too.

What to bring:

  • Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Screen printing ink will stain your clothing!
