Visible mending knee patch

Join us for an online creativity course with local artist Jennifer Falkowski.  August features TWO online classes, separate registration is required. 

First, on August 20th, we will explore visible mending. Be prepared to practice a few basic mending techniques like exterior and interior patching, working with denim and other materials, and adding patch pockets. Jennifer can provide some guidance and support on an individual project and then we can stitch together. 

Then, a week later on August 27th, we’ll use our new techniques to make our own hand-stitched, reversible masks. Register for Part 2 Here

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.
