Christmas Gnome making classes are back again this year, come along and get into the festive mood by creating yourself a set of three cute Christmas Gnomes in this Brisbane class!

Enjoy a welcome glass of bubbles as you get started on creating your set of gnomes. This is the perfect way to get in the mood for Christmas. Come solo or bring a friend and you get to take home the perfect handmade gift or your new favourite Christmas decorations.

Your DIY Christmas gnome kit included in the class contains a set of three gnomes (approx 50cm, 40cm and 20cm tall), there are many new fabric styles as well as many of the favourites to choose from. Your teacher will forward a list of colour selection options to choose from when you book your class. There will also be some different beard and embellishment options available during the class.

The two-hour class will include a demonstration as we make the middle-sized gnome together. If time permits, you can also get started on the other two gnomes or you can take them home to finish them. You can get as much done at the class as you feel comfortable with and there are full photographic instructions of how to make the gnomes included in your take-home kit.

You will be supplied with all tools and materials, and everything is pre-cut ready to put together making it much quicker. The gnomes are put together using some basic hand-sewing and hot glueing and before you “gnome” it, you will be marvelling at your cute Christmas creation!

There are many fabric choices available for the hat, body and beards. You will be sent an email with the choices so you can email your preferences to your teacher and they can create your custom kit. Please contact your teacher if you would like to discuss options.

Please note:

  • We bring extra beard and body options to the class if you want to change these on the day.
  • This class requires at least four students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.

Knowledge required
No experience is necessary, we will be using hot glue guns and doing some basic hand-sewing, so it is suited to anyone over the age of 15.
What you'll get
  • Your Christmas gnome kit includes all pre-cut materials and photographic instructions for a set of three Christmas gnomes of your choice - we will make the middle size one at the workshop and all three if time permits.

I have been creating costumes and props for the last 15 years for school theatre productions with a wonderful team of volunteers. As part of this, I ran a craft group to create the many props, costumes and craft pieces. I've now started my own business - Imagine by Samantha.

After the 2020 Covid interrupted year, I really wanted to bring back that feeling of getting together in a craft workshop and enjoy some face to face contact. My first Class Bento workshops last year were designed to create some festive cheer, so I set about designing some easy beginner Christmas gnome sets to make in a workshop and take them home for decorating your home or giving them as a beautiful handmade gift.

One of my other favourite activities over the years has been creating handmade fabric and cardboard flowers which I used in embellishments in various costumes and props. With Mother's Day coming up, I have created some beautiful Mother's Day gifts with an array of 3 dimensional fabric flowers presented in a shadow box to show that special appreciation for your Mum with the option of including a photo or Mother's Day wishes.

I love creating using recycled items and up-cycling items where possible. For the Festive gnomes I approached a local company to obtain 100% recycled plastic pellets from their manufacturing process and have used some vintage jumpers to make some of the hats too.

I’m not crafty but Sam our teacher made everything so easy nothing was too much trouble for her. She was very enthusiastic, helpful and friendly, and full of encouragement. She bought all the materials, and everything you could possibly need. We all thoroughly enjoyed the class and we’re happy with the results of our Christmas Gnomes we made. I would strongly recommend the class for anyone looking to do something a little bit different and fun *****
