Workshops Are Finally Here!



You have been asking for ages and we are happy to finally announce that Daley Kreations now offers workshops!

Part of the reason we haven't offered them regularly before (besides me having health issues) was we lost a good space to host them. However, after a bit of experimentation and a few test runs we discovered how to make our workshops portable! Now there is nothing holding us back! Want to learn how to work with Worbla? Why not book a DK Worbla Party? We'll bring the workshop right to your home, church hall, community centre, or office. Simply pick a project, round up 3-7 friends, and we'll bring all the tools, supplies, and expertise to complete it – at no cost to you! That's right – as the host of the party you get to play for free!

Excited and ready to go? BOOK NOW! Need more info? We have an FAQ below. What the heck Is “Worbla”?

Just in case you don't know, or have heard the name but still aren't sure just what Worbla is, Worbla is a low-temperature thermoplastic specifically designed for cosplayers, crafters, and artists. Once heated with just a basic heat gun, Worbla becomes soft and pliable allowing you to shape and sculpt it as desired. It hardens again upon cooling and can then be painted and decorated. The possibilities are nearly endless! Daley Kreations has developed a number of simple projects to introduce you to the different types of Worbla (yes, there are several types - there is a whole Worbla family of products) using the same techniques that you would then utilize for larger, more detailed projects.

What can I expect from a DK Worbla Workshop?

Upon booking a workshop you'll receive a "host packet" with your host agreement to sign and send back, some easy instructions for sending invites to your guests, and some fun ideas for themed snacks and decorations (particularly useful if you have booked the workshop to correspond with a shower, birthday, or other event). On the day (or night) of the workshop your friendly DK instructor will arrive with a project kit and tool set for each participant as well as all support materials such as paints, gesso, patterns, and decorations. We'll do a brief demo of the chosen project and then be available for the rest of the workshop to answer questions, offer suggestions, and assist participants as they work through the instructions (plus we'll clean-up at the end of course!). Each participant will walk away with a finished project piece for them to keep.

How much time do I need for a workshop?

Each project varies slightly (see project listings below) but expect approximately 3 hrs for a workshop. We've designed these projects to be finished easily within this time frame even for beginner crafters.

How much space do I need for a workshop? If you have enough space for a sit-down dinner you have enough space for a workshop! Each participant needs approximately the same amount of space as an average place setting for dinner. The only other thing you need to provide is access to an electrical outlet or two to plug in our heat-guns.

How much does a workshop cost? Prices vary per project and number of participants (see project listings below) but fall between $25-$50/person. Prices are lowest per participant for a full group of 8 ($25/each for 7 guests + the host at no cost). Payments can be made by cash or credit card at the start of the workshop. We do ask that the host provides a deposit at the time of booking but this will be refunded to you at the workshop.

Are these workshops appropriate for kids? Due to the use of heat-guns and craft knives during the projects we recommend an age of 12 and up for our workshops. We recommend kids 12-14 participate only with adult supervision (adult supervisors are free with a paid child participant).

Are these materials safe? Worbla is completely non-toxic and hypo-allergenic (safety data sheets are available on request). It gives off no strong fumes or scents when heated. The heat guns we use have shielded ends to minimize risks of burns. Some caution must be used with the craft knives provided and proper cutting technique is encouraged. All paints provided are non-toxic and clean up with soap and water.

I'm already familiar with Worbla - why should I book a Worbla Party?

Worbla Parties can be super versatile, making it a perfect activity for a birthday party, afternoon bachelorette/bachelor party, wedding or baby shower and just your own personal "relaxacon". Have a "Worbla & Wine" night with a bunch of friends. Why worry about digging out and organizing all the supplies yourself when we will bring everything needed and clean up at the end? Our projects are specially designed to be as simple or complex as you want. Even our "beginner" projects can be made more detailed to satisfy even experienced Worbla artists.

Are all your guests already used to regular Worbla? Try one of our more advanced projects such as an embossed Thibra bracelet. We will be adding new projects at all skill levels over time.
