KIDSFEST is one week away!!!! Join us for our annual creative arts festival for kids. There will be face painting, a campfire sing-along, and dozens of arts & crafts and activities to spark the imagination. .
This year’s #flaxkidsfest theme is CAMP FLAX! We’ll be dressing up and turning the entire store into a forested camp area. We encourage the kids to dress up too! Think woodland creatures, scouts, redwoods. Kidsfest is a not- to-be-missed event, and it’s always FREE!
Saturday July 28 from 11am-2pm.

POP into both our Oakland and San Francisco locations for these new pop up cards from @lovepop! FLAX is your go-to shop for greeting cards. We carefully select beautiful and unique cards you won't find other places. That's why we are excited to introduce you to @lovepop! More than a card, these are intricate 3D scultpures designed by naval engineers and then handcrafted in the art form of sliceform kirigami. When a text isn't enough, do something unexpected and send a Lovepop.
The absolutely amazing finished products of those who took our Zen & the Art of Urban Sketching class with @bigstickcharcoal! Everyone wants to be more zen, and these folks show what can come from taking a little time for yourself to create. Only about 20 minutes per each piece- these are all very impressive!
If you would like to take this class for yourself, August 12th is the next class! Don’t delay- sign up now, and get sketching!
@iylishr, from our FLAX Oakland store, was kind enough to share their personal @limncolors ‘scab colors’ inspired palette. (ft. Terra verte, limonite, quinacridone orange, burnt sienna, caput mortuum, magnetite, and perelyne maroon). Learn to get the most out of your palette at our Watercolor Color Mixing class this Saturday! Sign-up online. *link in bio*
We want to know what’s in your palette. Share your palette with us by posting a photo and using #mypaletteflax
