Summer is here!

So...it has been much too long since I was here! There are times when life just gets in the way and between kids, school events, appointments, and most recently trips to the doctor and Kinderspital for a broken big toe, and things fall through the cracks... Things like writing nice blog posts and keeping you informed about what's happening at The Creative Café! Does this happen to you too???

We will be closing for the summer holidays in order to recharge our batteries and spend time with our families. We'll be back open for you on Saturday, 19 August, with new stock and perhaps new people... More info to follow!

Have a lovely summer!

Workshops in April

April is just around the corner and we have some fun workshops to get you into the spirit of Easter and spring!

Sigrun Aeschbach will be offering two Easter decoration workshops (Sa., 1 & 8 April) where you will make adorable decoupage eggs using a variety of ribbons, lace and embellishments, as well as egg decorations using real eggshells and natural products like moss, feathers and sticks. What a great way to jazz up your table on Easter Sunday! Cost: CHF 39.- including all materials and refreshments (workshop in German).

In sticking with the Easter theme, Colleen will be offering a children's workshop (ages 8-12) on Wednesday, 5 April, making orange-scented sugar scrub packaged as carrots! What a great gift for a teacher, Gotti or Grandparent! Cost: CHF 20.- including all materials (workshop in English).

Finally, on 8 April, Colleen will be offering two workshops: one for smaller children (ages 4-8) making some cute spring flower pots using pasta and one for Mom's making a painted bead necklace. Cost: CHF 20.-/30.-, respectively, including all materials (workshop in English).

More info on all the workshops can be found on our calendar here. Just scroll down to the bottom and click on the workshop you are interested in!
