Virtual Workshop: Gilded Agate Coasters & Coffee Bitters

Get virtually crafty with us while you spend some quality time at home!  For our Virtual Workshops you’ll purchase your workshop/supply kit by the specified date below, we’ll ship by the indicated date, and then we’ll set you up with the virtual crafty link to join in on the workshop time with our instructor!!  You can do it in you sweatpants with your cozy drink in hand and either be on camera or off camera and ask questions at designated times.  As a participant you’ll also receive a link to rewatch for 1 month and keep all supplies (of course, right?!).

Stay gold and get ready to take on my personal favorite in the craft world:  freakin’ GOLD LEAF & hanging out with Andrea Anderson of Proof Distillers.  We’ll kick off our time with Andrea’s award-winning mixology skills to learn about bitters and then create a coffee bitters variety that you’ll let sit for a few weeks at home and transfer then into your fancy bottle dropper for use.  She’ll teach ya a cocktail perfect to pair with your new bitters, too.  Then we’ll dive into the glistening world of gold leaf and FANCY THINGS with Ashley (hi!) of Unglued.  We’ll gold leaf 2 agate slice coasters (that you are seeing at all the fancy places like Anthropologie)and talk about how many more things you can make gold in this weird world, too.  Basically we’ll level up that home bar for your stay at home use and eventual entertaining again, too.  #soprepared

Your kit will include:  2 agate slices (colors will vary but you’ll choose below when you register!), gold leaf adhesive, foam brush, 3 coaster clear bottom stickies, 2 gold leaf sheets, a small glass jar, a 2 oz amber glass bottle dropper, bitters ingredients (angelica root, orris root, and freshly roasted coffee beans by Dex!).

You will need at home:  an area that can get a bit messy with gold leaf and adhesive, liquor for your bitters:  recommended high proof whiskey, vodka, or everclear (you’ll need about 4 oz)!  Potentially rubbing alcohol to clean off your coaster for excess adhesive, but not required.

If you aren’t able to join the virtual workshop (and if you are!) we’ll send you a link within a day after the workshop to keep your sweet video instruction on hand to keep creating with for 1 month.

During the virtual party, we’ll have time for you to ask questions at various points and you’ll have the option to video yourself in or just watch/group chat in this low-key suuuuper chill 1.5-ish hour workshop.
