Thursday, August 23: [email protected] Workshop @ MADE Art Boutique See also: Jackalope Ranch's Pin Up Girl Archives

If anyone understands how Pinterest and Martha Stewart have inspired your scribbling that to-craft list on a notebook you made from recycled cereal boxes covered in ombre glitter, it's hands-on project extraordinaire Laura Gill. Gill has contributed to New Times blogs Chow Bella and Jackalope as the resident Pinterest pro, taking on everything from homemade gummies to doily lamps.

Now, the Pinup Girl brings projects to the public with [email protected], a third Thursday workshop she leads at Made Art Boutique, 922 North Fifth Street. Inspired by Magaret McGuire, Alicia Kachmar, and Katie Hatz's book Microcrafts, Gill's class on Thursday, August 23, will focus on making teeny, tiny things, like ladybugs and cake buntings. Class participation is $25, which includes all materials. -- Becky Bartkowski
