CLASS SESSIONS & TEACHERS
SUMMER CRAFTS CAMP AT NIMROD
July 19-21, 2019
5th Year Jubilee!
You'll learn to make three crafts that you can take home and keep or give!
No experience necessary for any of these activities...
This year, everyone will get to make all three of these dangly delights!
TRAVEL LIGHT! WITH STEWART ALLEN
Tote your phone and some cash in this self-locking hand-sewn leather crossbody pouch. Personalize it with your name or initials to make it uniquely yours or leave it plain - it's up to you! |
Materials fee: $15
Stewart's been crafting as long as she can remember and is always eager to learn something new. Knitting from an early age (she owned The Yarn Lounge in Carytown for 9 years) and picking up sewing and leatherwork along the way she's always got something in the works. At the beginning of 2015 she started a bag and accessory company LeatherWoolLinen.
PETITE PINATAS WITH MAGGIE SMITH
Make a mini piñata with beautiful plumage... a silly creature with a lot of fluffy character! We'll provide lots of tissue paper and cardboard so you'll have your pick of hue.
Maggie is a Richmond native, educated at Brenau University in Gainesville, Ga. A visual artist and curator with an inclination towards the silly, she is always on the hunt to create flora & fauna from unusual materials. She has taught classes at the Visual Arts Center in Richmond.
PAPER PAJAKIS WITH ELIZABETH COGAR
Pajakis are a festive Polish tradition... they are paper chandeliers to be hung during special occasions or year round. Choose from all kinds of paper, markers, paper punches, string, yarn, shiny stuff, straws and more to create your colorful hanging hoop o' happiness!
Elizabeth loves starting a project or learning how to do something new. She's partial to yarn, thread, fabric, indigo dye and all kinds of global textiles, and she thanks her artist mother for passing along the creative gene. Elizabeth makes at Studio Two Three and is also reporter at the Rappahannock Record and a relentless scavenger. She founded Makeshop in 2015 to give grown-ups a chance to learn new creative things and benefit from zen of making.
