Crafting has become so popular. I know of a lot of workshops and classes that offer crafting and art classes not only for little children, but for adults and mommies like yours truly! Shucks! To tell you honestly, I’m not a crafty mom. I have an eye for what’s nice and what looks nice, but I’m so lazy to do any of these crafty and artsy things by myself. But with my new role as a mom, I figured, I think I better start trying. I remember that when I was younger, my mom would help me with my art, science and other projects. I thought to myself that I can’t be a disappointment to Zeeka!
Sooooo… my sister and I enrolled in BEME. It’s a crafting and arts school at the Rockwell Club. We enrolled for two sessions. Our schedule was Sundays at 3pm. I think you can call them to set a date and a time. Check out the BEME school!
Looking at all of the things made by individuals was so inspiring! I chose to make a wooden basket for my first meeting and a picture frame for the second session. The person assigned to us was a guy named Eric. Eric was very patient with me and my sister. He was a great teacher!
These were the materials that I used for the basket. The wood that we used was Palo Chino. In BEME, they have all the tools that you might need. Check out all the things that I used for my basket.
And for the finished product, here is my basket! What do you think? hehe! I plan to paint it, but I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
For my second session, I wanted to create a picture frame and this is what I made…
I forgot how much each session cost. We got ours as a deal in Deal Grocer so it was at a discounted rate. BEME has three branches: BEME Manila Polo Club, Rockwell Club and Sofitel Manila.
