WKS433: How to Make a Tote Bag

Learn to sew your own reusable grocery bag!

In this class, you will learn the basics of working with fabric, using a pattern and sewing seams in the right order. You will also learn about the most commonly used seam types and their uses, what the "grain" is and why it's important, and what all those markings are on a sewing pattern. Finally, you will use your skills to make a nice, sturdy grocery bag that has its own hidden storage pouch.

No sewing experience is needed (other than having taken and passed the Basic Sewing Machine Safety and Basic Use class).

Prerequisite class: You must have already taken the Basic Sewing Machine SBU in order to take this class.

WKS436: Soapstone Turning on the Wood Lathe

Ever wished you could turn more than wood on a wood lathe? Here's the good news- you can! Students in this workshop will learn the finer points of turning soapstone on the wood lathe. Soapstone, unlike other stones, is soft enough to be tuned on the lathe, and can be worked more quickly, easily and accurately than with traditional stone carving. This class is also an excellent introduction to face plate turning, which is perfect for anyone looking to make concave projects (bowls, goblets, etc.). Students will turn a small container with a lid, the perfect starter project for anyone looking to turn more complex projects out of soapstone in the future.

Prerequisite: Wood Lathe SBU.
