Level 1 Block Printing & Sewing: No prior experience is needed

Join Thea Gahr & Ellie Lum for a 2 week series on block printing and sewing. During this printing/sewing series, students will design, print, and sew their own fabric while completing a lined zipper pouch. This two-part workshop allows us to focus on learning one craft in each session.

You may choose to register for only block printing or only the sewing portion of this series or take both workshops!

You will learn how to sew zippers, machine basics such as threading the machine & trouble-shooting, how to attach a leather zipper pull with metal brads, how to make a zipper pouch with liner fabric
