There is something about creating something with
your own hands for another that makes gift giving
into something bigger.
I want my workshops to provide a bit of calm creativity
in the middle of what is often a busy and rushed
season. Making gifts should provide the maker with a
sense of pleasure.
All materials are provided, and while each class
has examples of what could be made, ultimately
what you make is up to you. This isn't paint by numbers
or insert tab A into slot B to make C.
Each class begins with an explanation of what the
materials are, as well as simple methodology,
add some ideas to get you started, and then...
see where it takes you.
Just click on the flyers to expand them.
The last two classes (the only ones that are adult only)
can be taken as a series or singly.
Thermoset vinyl is the material that I use to embellish
many of my dice bags. It is a material that can be
easily cut with scissors, it can be layered, and once it's
been heat set to fabric, the finished item can be washed
in a washer. It can be applied to ready made items,
but I prefer to embellish fabric and then sew the fabric
into an item.
Which leads me to the last class. The tote making
class is an arena where you can use fabric I have,
fabric you have, or fabric you have made or embellished.
It's the "I have this, what do I do with it?" solution.
So there you have it. Come and make some gifts,
have fun, and be creative.
