Class Level: Fascination – These classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class. For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.

I dye because I love to experiment and I get so excited for the reveal. I sew because I enjoy how meditative it is. I create because it's the method through which I express myself, and when I get impassioned I feel an urge to create something.
