Have you ever wanted to explore your crafty side but not spend a bundle on supplies that could just end up at the back of the closet? Think you can’t sew? Not creative? Let us show you differently!

Below are our current class offerings. We’ll be adding more based on availability of mentors willing to teach and YOUR suggestions.  Classes will include a variety of home arts and upcycled crafts, not just sewing so check back and/or Like The Bee on Facebook for the latest info.

SLIGHTLY SENTIMENTAL: BASIC QUILTING CLASS

Four sessions that will have you taking your first steps in quilt-making.  Read more.

TEE SHIRT QUILTS

Concert tees, race tees, vacation souveniers. What to do with ALL. THOSE. TEE SHIRTS?  Let us help you pull them together into something you can use and admire.   (Not quite ready to commit to an entire quilt? Let’s talk pillows and scarves!)  Read more.

SATURDAY MAKE + TAKES

Join us on occasional Saturdays (stay tuned to our Facebook page or sign up for our emails for announcements) for a fun class where you’ll walk away with your finished product by the end of the session. Classes are held at CoWork155. Times, fees (typically a suggested donation between $7 and $15 dollars per class), and other particulars vary.
