Block printing on Fabric
- Saturday, November 3, 10-4pm
This day-long workshop will take you through the entire process of designing your own blocks to print a repeating pattern on fabric. You will learn how to create a pattern as well as design and then carve a successful block that you can use over and over again. This age old surface design method is great for anyone who wants to create unique fabric to sew with, quilters or up-cyclers - anyone who wishes to get their ideas onto textiles! Tips and tricks galore for success each and every time you print any fabric yardage or textile of any sort. Bring a lunch, snacks and seltzer will be provided. You will leave with a set of repeatable skills, a yard of fabric that you have printed, a tea towel and a block or two that you can use over and over. This workshop is limited to six participants and all materials are included.

Jewelry Basics Workshop
- Saturday, November 3, 11–3pm
In this 4-hour workshop, you'll learn to use basic jewelry making tools and various types of beads and findings which are the metal "parts" of jewelry such as ear wires, eye pins, head pins and jump rings, to create two unique sets of earrings to take home.
We'll be talking about repurposing old jewelry or beads so feel free to bring any jewelry you wish to reuse whether in good condition or broken. I'll show you how to take your old pieces apart to showcase that one special bead or how to reuse all the beads.
I'll help you to correctly open loops and jump rings and create wrapped loops on beads which will enable you to connect components together. Best of all, you'll leave this workshop with the knowledge of how to use findings and beads to create an endless array of unique jewelry.
Class fee of $99 provides 4 hours of instruction, all materials and the use of tools.
Jennica LeSiege is a local artist who loves to show others the beauty of creation. She designs both beaded and metal jewelry using her own hand-made elements and findings.
