Welcome, my name is Angela Wolfson and it is my pleasure to introduce you to all that we have to offer here at Rusted Petal. For years, I harboured my passion for woodworking within the walls of my garage, and this business was built so that others can share that passion with me. Rusted Petal offers woodworking workshops that allow anyone and everyone to build, with various different building options available. From Blanket Ladders to Christmas Tree Boxes, we have something for everyone. Whether it’s a fun night out with friends and family, or a simple desire to build, Rusted Petal is prepared and honoured to meet all of your needs. The entire shop will be filled with homemade furniture with certain items available for purchase and custom order. As well, Take-and-make kits will be available for anyone looking to build at home. The kits will follow the same preparations as the workshops, including detailed instructions. Please note that tools and paint will not be provided in the kits.
We are open from Tuesday through Friday, our workshops run from 11-2pm on Wednesdays 6:30-10pm Fridays and 1-4pm on Saturdays. Closed Sunday and Monday. You will find us located at 114, 7865 – 56th Street SE Calgary, AB.
I have been a stay at home mom for the past 18 years, during those years I was able to hone my creative skills and discover my love of woodworking. I love taking on all projects and to see a space come together with projects that I have built.
I started building a number of years ago with small wooden signs and seasonal decorations which I sold at the spruce Meadows Christmas Market for 4 years. Eventually, I ended up including furniture into my repertoire which is extremely gratifying and probably my favourite thing to build. I am a self-taught woodworker. Trial and Error along with very patient and loving husband have allowed me to grow into the woodworking woman I am today. With my oldest child in University and my youngest in high school, now it is time to focus a little bit on myself. I am extremely fortunate to get to start a business in which I get to share my passion with anyone and everyone. Through projects from small tabletop centrepieces to larger pieces of furniture, I look forward to experiencing this adventure with you all.
