Sashiko Mending Workshop with Katrina Rodabaugh | $160

MendingMattersPhoto7.jpg

Two sessions     |    10a-1p & 2p-5p

Mending is a wonderful way to practice hand-stitching and simultaneously participate in Slow Fashion. Simple stitches transform torn or distressed garments, homewares, and other textiles through thoughtful, beautiful repairs. Sashiko is a traditional Japanese hand-stitching technique that lends itself beautifully to contemporary crafts. It’s also the perfect stitch to mend existing garments or embellish textiles. Katrina Rodabaugh will lead the group in a discussion of cross-cultural mending techniques like Japanese Boro and Sashiko, American quilting, and European darning and their modern applications in Visible Mending and Slow Fashion. The class will also consider “mendfulness” or applying mindfulness to fashion and the creative opportunity in repair.

This workshop will lead participants through an overview of basic Sashiko and embroidery stitches before turning to a personal garment that needs repairing. Each student will receive an individual consultation on how best to mend one garment considering fabric, fiber, thread, color, lines, techniques, and more. Students will leave the workshop with a stitching sampler, mended garment (in-progress), various resources, and several materials. Basic sewing and stitching skills are required.

Please bring your own woven fabric garment or textile for mending (denim is great, linen, quilting cotton, or silk is fine too) and a patch that matches the weight and fiber of the garment being mended. (Denim should be mended with denim and linen with linen, etc.)

Please enroll by 11/8 to ensure your spot in the workshop!

Figure drawing is part of the foundation of a drawing practice.  In this class we will seek to demystify drawing the body and rediscover the poetry of the human form.  Using a live nude model as inspiration, we will begin with a series of 30 second poses using soft charcoal to loosen up our technique, and then will move into studies of longer poses in which we can explore light and shadow, details and different media.  The main emphasis in this class is to capture the life and energy that is present in the human body, not necessarily to draw a photorealistic portrait.  Perfect for beginners and advanced artists alike! All materials will be provided by us, but feel free to BYOB!

Knot Basics: Creating a Collection of Symbolic Knots with Lise Silva | $95

knot basics class 8_preview.jpeg

Knotting connects us to the past and grounds us in the present, using hand and mind in skillful play like an active meditation. The limitless possibilities of a single cord, connecting and intertwining, was thought by our ancestors to explain the workings of the cosmos and activate the powers of the subconscious. From the manifestation powers of Chinese knots to the metaphysical principles in Celtic designs, craftsmen and women from around the world communicated systems of belief through knots. By expressing our dreams through a system of symbols, knots also propel us into the future.  

While also functional, knots can display powerful symbols and add eye-catching ornamentation to empty space. In this 2 1/2 hour course, Lise Silva will guide you through these goals 1) introduce the fundamental concepts of knotting and knot symbolism 2) set intention and learn how to create a knotting practice 3) learn to read knotting diagrams 3) introduce a variety of knotting techniques and brainstorm ideas for projects 4) learn how to create tassels 5) create a small collection of knots for display. Included in this course is cotton rope, Knot: A Book (an instructional guide) to inspire future creations, yarn for tassels in several colors for you to add to your piece.

Makers Workshop: Figure Drawing | $46

Figure drawing is part of the foundation of a drawing practice.  In this class we will seek to demystify drawing the body and rediscover the poetry of the human form.  Using a live nude model as inspiration, we will begin with a series of 30 second poses using soft charcoal to loosen up our technique, and then will move into studies of longer poses in which we can explore light and shadow, details and different media.  The main emphasis in this class is to capture the life and energy that is present in the human body, not necessarily to draw a photorealistic portrait.  Perfect for beginners and advanced artists alike! All materials will be provided by us, but feel free to BYOB!  

Please enroll by 6/18 to ensure your spot in the workshop!

Getting Laid + Getting Paid. A class for creative people who get weird about money. | Individual $65 | Friends $117

Paco de Leon_03 Photo by Jenn Pablo._preview.jpeg

“My hourly rate is $100, but what did you have in mind?”
“We’re totally flexible on price.”
“Sure, you need a website and a logo, too? We can do that.” - Interior Designer

No. Just please stop.

Creative people often get super weird about money. It makes us sad. We’re creative people who don’t get weird about money and enjoy helping other creative people get un-weird about money. As long-time hustlers and successful small business owners, we’re also both fascinated by the overwhelming similarities between how to make money and how to navigate intimacy and relationships. 

Money is boring, but sex is sexy, so we decided to talk about money by talking about sex.

This workshop will take you through the process of understanding the value of your work, figuring out how to communicate about it and get paid well for it. From new business to how to navigate clients that ask for too much, the struggle and the solutions are no different than how to navigate Tinder, love and marriage. 

The valuable stuff you’ll actually learn
1. How to stop dreading the money conversation with clients
2. How to stop doing shitty work that you don’t like doing
3. How to sell without feeling sleazy or needy/how to sell confidently
4. And you’ll get to ask us specific questions about your money weirdness, too
