So the question has presented itself: how can I teach (just) a 2-hour course on how to make a cool advent calendar to a potential person who may not know how to do some of the stuff I know how to do, and without sewing? This has been a fun design challenge over the last two weeks. Here are the prototypes I've come up with so far:
Neither one is complete yet, but still works in progress. I like how the red one has turned out a lot, although the process of making it wasn't simple. So I have been working through how to make it easier and for the blue one, I've developed a simpler process (using stencils for creating the doors). I plan to make a couple more prototypes in order to take good photos and then advertise the course around town (this is a part of the goal that Sarah and I have in common: flyers!). One of the versions will be using pockets. I just haven't figured out how to do that in a durable and simple way without using sewing.

This was lovingly custom made by my very handy husband. I sit at my art table and find myself staring at my new sink with tenderness and love. This is truly a dream come true.
