blue house workshops + d'argyle = robots, sewing, collages

hello in the new year, friends!

this saturday kicks off a few of my workshops at blue house ann arbor.

blue house ann arbor is currently offering a mini makers series of craft workshops for kids. elana is teaching the ones for the preschoolers and i'm doing the school age ones. next up for me:

build a bot... for kids aged 8-12... you'll use all sorts of bits and bobbles and metal and gears and parts to design and create your own robots! charge up your circuit boards for this one! if you have any random bits you think would be great on a robot, do bring. it happens 1/15, 10am-12pm, registration required, $20 per session.

adult basic sewing happens later that same day, from 1-3pm. it's just the basics. the class is designed for those with no skill, limited skill, or rusty skills. we'll go over the functions of the machine and get you feeling confortable with working it and getting some stitches done. i'll have some supplies on hand if you want to get a small project started. there will be sewing machines at blue house, but if you want to bring your own, please do! it's easier for you to get comfy with sewing on your own machine. fear not, sewing is fun and awesome. registration is required, $30 per session.

also, in february i will be teaching my final mini makers workshop of the season:
crafty collages. we'll use images from magazines and found things to create crafty collages, finished and ready for hanging. it all happens saturday, 2/5, 10am-12pm for ages 8-12. registration required, $20 per session.
