August 2 - Fused Plastic Wallets!

 

This week we're going to make something cool and usable from your trash! We've emptied out our plastic bag cupboard (you have one too - admit it!).

We're going to use them to create a water resistant fabric to turn into wallets. We have tons of bags but bring your own stash, especially those that are clear, brightly colored, or have cool patterns and pictures.

August 4 - Tshirt Transformation!

 

The dog days of summer are upon us (at least we hope so!) Bring your old tshirts to the Clubhouse tonight and we'll show you how some fun easy ways to transform them.

We'll show you how to turn your too big t-shirts into super cute tank tops. No sewing needed just a sharp pair of scissors.

We'll also show you how to make produce bags. These can be made out of any size tee and is a great way to save those that have gotten too small to wear. They require only the tiniest bit of sewing and snipping to create washable, reusable bags. They're perfect for toting your lunch, shopping at the farmers market or taking to the beach.

August 9 - Dyeing with Nature!

 

Join us for a special Social Club as we explore natural dyeing...

We'll start by taking a walk in the neighborhood to harvest some plants and flowers, so wear your sunscreen! We'll take our findings back to the clubhouse and use them to dye wool yarn and cotton muslin. We'll also explore some of the things you can get at the grocery store like onion skins and kool aid to use as dye.

Feel free to bring your own fabric or yarn to dye, just make sure it's a natural fiber. And be sure to dress down for this one folks, it can get messy.

September 15 - 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.
