Textiles Fall One-Week Session III
November 3-9, 2019
Leigh Hilbert
A Place for Tools

This workshop is for those who honor their tools and want to create the proper containers for them. Whether your tools are used for cooking, sewing, woodworking, jewelry, or something else entirely, we’ll create custom-sized, detailed rolls, sheaths, aprons, and bags. Students will learn basic pattern drafting techniques and think about form and function as they create their own versions of these work accessories using canvas, leather, and hardware. Basic sewing machine skills will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all levels. NOTE: Textiles workshops are taught in walk-up studios accessible by a stair lift. Code F03TA
