This week we're going to play with wax and natural dyes to create our very own beautiful batik fabrics. Dress down and join us for a night of messy fabric fun.

01July
Wine Bottle Glasses

It's one of our most popular workshops, and because it keeps selling out before you can get your tickets, we're going to host a whole month of Wine Bottle Wednesdays!  Bring some full bottles and some empty ones and we'll show you how to score, break and polish them into the ultimate upcycled party favor...

We've perfected the method and are ready to teach you - you can expect to leave here with two finished glasses.

July 6 - Pompoms and Tassels Hooray!

We're going to learn to make yarn pom-poms and tassels! We'll show you how to use these festive fuzzy balls to create a decorative garland or a fabulous scarf. We'll have yarn for you to play with, but feel free to bring your own special colors if you'd like.

11July
July 11+13 - Old Skool Screen Printing!

 

Ask and you shall receive! Screen printing is the number one project request we get from Social Clubbers so here it is...

We will be learning about the process and ways to replicate it at home without a dark room, light table or press. We will be creating our stencils by hand so bring a black and white image to trace. We will have cotton muslin to try your prints on.

Bring a t-shirt or other fabric item to print on if you want! (if you really like our super soft shirts, we'll have some awesome blanks in the Social Club Commissary).

July 26 - Mirror Mosaics!

Join us for a Special Project Sunday! This week we have local artist Mary Jo Karimnia in the Clubhouse to show us how to create with mosaic tile.

She is going to start us off with a little lesson on color theory and then let us loose to choose from her huge collection of colored tiles. We will have mirrors of different shapes and sizes for you to pick from to start your creation.

MJ is going to share a bunch of tips and tricks for creating beautiful and durable mosaic pieces. Your finished project will be approximately 10X12 inches. 

 

01August
August 1+3 - Treasure Boxes!

This week in the clubhouse we're going to decorate treasure boxes. We will have boxes of several shapes/sizes for you to choose from. Our first step will be to create an image or pattern using wood burning tools. We'll finish our designs using wood stains, paints and if you're nice we'll pull out the gold leaf.

You can bring an image for the top of your box, or choose from one of ours when you get here. If you want to bring one, keep in mind that you will be 'drawing' your image on your box and they are under 6 inches.

August 15 - Mug Rugs!

Who doesn't love a rug for their mug?  Whether you're keeping the hot coffee off your lap or your beer can's condensation off your coffee table, these hand woven trivets are super fun to make and quite handy to keep around.

Come hang in the Clubhouse with us and learn some basic weaving techniques and even how to make your own loom.

August 22+24 - Silk Marbling

Zen and the art of marbling. Remember those beautiful old paper stacks called books? Well the older (and fancier) ones often had marbled edges and inside covers.  We'll be teaching you how to marble your own paper with custom colors and intricate patterns. Once you get the hang of it we'll show you how to create a beautiful marbled piece of silk.
