Kumihimo is the traditional Japanese technique of braiding strands of silk to create intricately colored cording. Samurai warriors once used kumihimo as laces for their armor. Learn to make your own multi-colored Kumihimo necklace, using silky cording and a pretty matching glass cabochon pendant. Renee will show you how to set up and weave on the special disk made specifically for Kumihimo, then teach you the steps for professionally finishing off your final design.  Note: this class teaches the same technique but a different project than the previous kumihimo class, so returnees and newbies both welcome. $8 material fee due at registration for project supplies, including disk, colored cording, pendant, and clasp.  View more project photos at www.ReneeJewelryClasses.com.

Trendy tees can cost $30 or more, but you can make them for a fraction of that! In this hands-on class, you’ll use a different technique each night to create a graphic tee that you’ll take home. By the end of the week, you’ll have a distressed tee, a selfie tee, an emoji tee, and a geometric tee—plus the skills needed to make more. You can create a whole new wardrobe for yourself, family, and friends—or create your own line of custom t-shirts. Mick will discuss how to do so on a budget. Camp fee includes four 100%-cotton t-shirts plus all materials. Register no later than July 6 and indicate your t-shirt size. Never buy department store tees again!

Beautiful, long-lasting succulent centerpieces provide style and color with minimal care. They’re inexpensive and easy to make from cuttings—and as they grow, they can be divided to create additional arrangements for your office, home, or patio. They also make great gifts that keep on giving!  The variety of shapes, colors and textures makes for unusual and interesting arrangements, and require minimal water. In this hands-on class, you’ll design your own living arrangement to take home and enjoy. Your instructor will provide potting soil and the succulents, you just bring the container 10" x 10" or smaller, preferably with drainage holes (ceramic pot, teacup, unusual bowls, be creative!). $5 material fee due at registration.

Anyone can create beautiful clothes, bedding, handbags, jewelry, placemats, tablecloths, lamp shades, wall hangings, wrapping paper, and more! You needn’t draw; you can use patterns and techniques like waxing, salting, and alcohol to create your design. Projects include scrunch-n-run, Japanese shibori & other tie-dying, batiks, and painting. Typical hand-painted silk scarves sell for around $45 apiece—but you can make them for $5 to $7, and you’ll take home 2-3 pieces each night! $80 material fee covers all silks and design supplies as well as a frame, bottles with tips, and mixing cups for making more pieces at home since this can easily be done in a kitchen or on a balcony.  *See class confirmation for details on what to wear and bring.
