Not all are blessed with the kind of creative forte that LA's most craftiest of DIY darlings are made of, but this summer may finally be your chance to channel your hidden Martha Stewart skills. Brother-sister duo Philip and Kathleen Graulty are on a mission to make LA a city of craftsters with People's Pop-Up, a new series of workshops by that kicks off this week.
From this Thursday, July 24 to Saturday, August 9, People's Pop-Up is taking over a host of LA boutiques and creative spaces for eight hands-on classes led by local talents, including costume designer Colleen Monroe, woodcarving guru Yo Takimoto, pro shutterbug Loretta Ayeroff and others. Seshes include photography 101 at DTLA's the Pie Hole ($40), Japanese woodcarving at sleek Scandinavian design store Austere ($30), Sashiko embroidery at cool Silver Lake gift shop LA County Store ($25), upcycled fashion design at artsy co-work space Maker City LA ($25) and many more.
