Future Craft Collective just finished up its first month of afterschool classes and all agreed it was completely awesome. Seriously, every member to the one used that word again and again (and again). The classes were all about deconstructing, reusing, upcycling, creating, stitching, laughing, singing, even eating cupcakes for one special occasion and oh yeah, sewing.
We learned about The Story of Stuff and sustainable crafting and owning your own style and using less and seeing more and making it ourselves and innovation and improvising and each member walked away at the end of each class with some really cool handmade items: ransom note t-shirts and t-shirt skirts, appreciation banners, recycled journals and our own little ugly dolls. (and we mean that in a nice way) All this in the name of not only learning a truer, deeper meaning of value and worth, but seriously honing some mean sewing skills in the process!!
Round two of afterschool classes is starting up on May 5th.
Classes will be held each Monday in May from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
In the sewing studio on DeVerne just off of S. Lamar at Bluebonnet.
Check out the blog for camps and other info about the Collective.
This next session will be $85.00 plus a $10.00 supply fee.
