Join us for an online creativity course with local artist Jennifer Falkowski. We’ll use basic hand-sewing techniques to make our own hand-stitched, reversible masks. Jennifer will provide instruction for the project, some individual guidance and then we can stitch together.
This is the second of a 2-part program. Missed the first session? That’s ok! If you have basic hand-sewing skills you’re welcome to join. If you want to brush up on your skills before the program watch this video recommended by our instructor.
After registration, you will receive details about when to pick up your art kit at the library. Then, 24 hours before the program we will share the login information for the online Zoom session.
Your library kit will include:
- Visible mending supplies (Aug 20): A couple of practice fabric patches, needle & thread, straight pins
- Hand-stitched mask supplies (Aug 27): Precut fabric pieces and toggle. Continue to use the pins, needle, and thread from the visible mending kit.
You will need to have these items ready by the start of our session:
The classes at Paradigm Gardens are going really well, they are super awesome to work with!
I have a Shibori Class coming up on the 16th of August at Paradigm that still has some room.
I won’t be offering an Indigo 101 Class there in August, though. It’s only because I’m teaching one at Olbrich Gardens. It’s a teeny bit cheaper, it’s a teeny bit shorter with a little less fabric available, and it’s a big bit more outside. It’ll be awesome and I hope you’ll sign up for it.

Here’s their class description:
“Shibori and Indigo Dyeing Workshop
Join Jennifer Falkowski for a hands-on exploration of making patterns on fabric using Shibori methods of dyeing with a natural indigo vat. Shibori is a Japanese process of tying, folding, and clamping fabric to create beautiful patterns when dyed. You will learn four different patterns and make four large coordinating indigo-dyed cloth napkins to take home. No dyeing experience necessary. Plan to get messy – wear old clothes and shoes and bring one pair of rubber gloves and a plastic bag for carrying your work home. All other materials provided. Class meets outdoors (rain date August 25). Adults and youth (ages 12 and up w/ an adult); each attendee pays the registration fee. Limited space; register early.
Tuesday, August 18 (rain date August 25), 6-8:30 pm
Registration Deadline: August 11
Cost: $78 per person | Course Number: 21-15″
