Create Your Own Monster Workshop
Laurie will help makers of all ages create a fleece monster with a self-love twist. While a younger child can enjoy the art of creating their own personalized toy, teenagers can create an expression of their personality, and adults will enjoy honing their hand sewing and crafting skills in an inventive way. This event is open to everyone with sewing knowledge ranging from beginner to advanced. Monster makers under 16 years of age are required to have active adult help during this event.
There will be a fee for this class of $10 for the general public, $5 for current Knox Makers members. With this fee, you will automatically have purchased the “basic monster” kit which will make a 4 inch monster great for sewing beginners. If you wish to purchase a more advanced kit, please bring money to purchase that upgrade on the day of the class. There are several kit options available. These include: 1. $10 for a mini monster, makes a 4 inch monster, more detailed than the basic monster; 2. $20 for a “sew easy” monster, makes an 8 inch monster; or 3. $32 for a “spare to share” monster, makes two 8 inch monsters.
There will be a 16 person maximum for this class, and a 2 person minimum. If the class minimum is not reached by 48 hours prior to the time the class is scheduled to begin, the class will be canceled and all tickets will be refunded.
