About the Workshop

Join us for a 1.5 hour workshop on the art of sock creatures. This work shop will be hosted by crafting expert Laura Makaltses.  In this workshop you will learn how to make a sock monkey! Laura will walk you through the step by step process from sock to sock monkey. 

Participants will leave the workshop with a better understanding of found object art and how they can expand on the basic sock monkey design and make their own creations. They will also have their very own sock monkey! These make great gifts for children and grandchildren. Grad a pair of socks and lets make something awesome together!

Guests have the option to follow along and create their own sock monkeys in real time as Laura provides step by step instructions OR feel free to just watch and create later! 


  • A pair of socks (old or new)
  • Stuffing or an old stuffed pillow (cut open the pillow for the contents ahead of time)
  • Needle
  • Thread (Close to the colour of the sock or a contrasting colour depending on the style you prefer)
  • Marker 
  • Buttons or scrap fabric (for eyes)

About our Host: Laura Makaltses is an artist from Toronto. She has been making sock creatures for over 10 years and has taught many people how to make their own. She is always excited to work with new students.
