In this class students will learn about creating simple prints on fabric through mark making and create a different small sewing project each class with this self-made fabric. Each project covers a new every day need such as pencil cases, oven mitts, tote bags, and coin purses.

Students will come away with patterns for several small projects, as well as skills in mark making and basic prints to make even more truly bespoke and personalized objects. They will go forward with a fresh appreciation for the seemingly ordinary objects in one’s life and turning them into something special and unique! Basic machine sewing skills needed. (No class on February 11)

Materials fee: $15 (Includes fabric pigment and linoleum)

Please come to class with 3 meters white cotton, pad of tracing paper and a large spool of white thread.
