In this love-themed laser class, we'll be etching custom designs onto bars of chocolate! Participants will have the opportunity to etch a design of their choosing onto a bar of Theo chocolate, wrap the cleverly designed treat in a crafty customized laser cut box, and accompany their temporal art with a bit of handmade fanmail too!
We'll have all kinds of glitter, glue, embroidery floss, colored pencils and miniature hearts on hand for the occasion. Men, women, singles, couples and kiddos are all encouraged to make something special for a loved one -- whether that loved one is Ryan Gosling, yourself or someone equally worthy.
All you'll need to bring is your creativity, sense of humor, and inclination to play with your food!
