    There’s something about a good DIY that gets our inner Crayola-crazed child all giddy with excitement. But, let's be real: More often than not, what starts as an incredible craft project eventually gives way to frustration, a trash can full of failed attempts, and at least a few minor glue-gun burns. Does that mean you should just let go of your crafting dreams and artsy aspirations? Not a chance!

    Instead, we'll let you in on the secret key to DIY success: a great teacher. From an afternoon focused entirely on making Shibori pillows with an indigo dye master to a calligraphy workshop that will take your holiday-card envelope game from eh to ohhh!, we've rounded up the ultimate guide to L.A.'s coolest and most beneficial craft workshops. So, go ahead and ditch your computer for a few hours! In the end, you'll have a rad new skill and a relaxing way to spend your spare time.
