June 15

Zines: Using collage and mixed media, contribute a page to the third volume of the Muzine, a visitor-created analogue publication.

Mask-making: Either creepy or glamorous, turn a simple line drawing into a wearable work of art.


July 20

Filmmaking: Spend an afternoon learning about experimental filmmaking techniques.


August 3

Natural Dyeing: From rusty nails to avocado skins, see how a few odds and ends become vibrant colors for fabric.


August 17

Fabric Scraps: Give new life to old snippets by turning them into magnets, journals, baskets and more.
