What you'll do

In celebrating the year of Ox, I’ll be showing you how to turn old into "niú" this Lunar New Year in this special edition Online Experience!

Found some mismatched or 'didn't know where this came from' socks in your drawer? Why not turn them into adorable stuffed puppets? Join me as I guide you and your little one through the process of upcycling old socks into fashionable new toys.

This experience is for everyone so let’s get your kids and other family members involved! Let's spend some quality time together this Chinese New Year, while learning how to reuse and recycle old materials into something new. I look forward to creating something special with you this festive season.

Great camaraderie and good experience but needed more socks with colors or different sizes to achieve a better looking puppet. But my daughter loves her overall puppet and been hanging on to it every day.

Awesome class! Although we have limited time, I ended up doing more puppets after class. Super cute! I enjoyed it very much.
