We are so thrilled to announce our new line of hands-on creative experiences called "Creative Kits" in collaboration with our friends at LAB! Each kit highlights a Minnesota based business and features their product in the kit.

LAB is a local business in Minneapolis offering creative and business workshops. Their diverse classes in both disciplines provide endless tools and resources to a range of levels, with the main goal to inspire and connect creative individuals in the community. LAB also offers their space for private events and space rental.
The Creative Kits - The Process
Strong community partners and friends, it was only a matter of time before we collaborated with the talented women over at LAB. Combining our strengths, we landed on the Creative Kits. A few months ago, we sat down with LAB to brainstorm what sort of modern DIY style boxes would inspire our audiences while simultaneously connecting people to the Minnesota maker community. After throwing around some fun ideas, we moved ahead on three kits to start the collection. LAB curated and sourced all of the goods, designed the beautiful co-branded logo featured on the boxes and crafted the instruction guides. Since we have the building, packaging and shipping chops, we're handling the delivery. We are so proud of this project and excited to see the creations our customers make!
