Gift an Experience This Year

gift an experience

A Workshop or Special Event is the Perfect Gift to Give…or Maybe Even Ask For!

We’re all looking for less clutter and more calmness in our lives. Workshops & events at Ben Franklin Crafts are the perfect way to gift an experience instead of clutter, allowing the receiver to benefit from the physical, social and mental health aspects of crafting. The “mindfulness” of crafting can be a welcome antidote to the stresses and pressures of modern living.

  • If you are in need of a gift idea, consider one of these options, then visit our Workshop & Event Calendar to register.
  • You’ll find a link to supplies required on each workshop page – another gift option!
  • If you would like the gift to be a secret, fill out the registration form for your recipient but use YOUR email address. You may add the email of your recipient in the Notes section of the form.
  • If you would love to receive one of these items as a gift, be sure to print a copy to leave somewhere where your loved one will find it!
