Date: Tuesday, July 7 from 1-5pm
Instructor: Jen Athanas
Workshop Fee: $55 members / $65 non-members
Class size: 6-10 participants

Join the green movement with a hand-crafted tote made from recycled fabrics. In this workshop, you will learn to evaluate recycled fabrics such as old clothing or vintage housewares and see how they can be repurposed. You will then create and sew a roomy tote bag. Each student will leave the class with a one-of-a-kind creation to impress friends, strangers and everyone at the farmers market. Each person will need to have basic sewing skills AND bring a sewing machine and sewing supplies. The instructor will also provide a suggested list of supplies closer to the workshop date.

This workshop has been canceled

Meet the Instructor: Jen Athanas - Jen Athanas is a fiber artist who specializes in fashion accessories made from recycled fabrics. She has taught sewing, image transfer, surface design and much more. She likes students to explore and have fun while creating.
