Always wanted to learn to use a sewing machine?
This is the perfect time to join us in The Foundry’s Textile Lab.
Develop a new skill and make a tote of your own (or an AMAZING gift).

In this two-evening class participants will make a classic canvas tote bag while mastering the basics of sewing. This beginner level course will be led by instructor Phillipia Glover, the owner of Marvelous Light - one of the companies operated out of The Foundry.

The Foundry provides the machines and materials. But if you'd like to use a specific fabric or color, please feel free to bring a yard of heavy cotton weight woven (not stretchy) canvas fabric. The fabric provided for this project will be a range of neutral solid colored canvas and some eclectic patterns as well.
