In this family oriented workshop, we will learn everything we need to know to paint and sew a unique zippered pouch to carry art supplies, make-up, or whatever you want to throw in there. Finished pouches are 10” x 5” and lined for extra durability. This is a beginning sewing class designed for children as young as 9 years old accompanied by an adult. Each participant makes their own pouch. Instructor will supply all materials, but participants are welcome to bring their own light colored fabric to work with. Paints are non-toxic but will stain clothing.  Please wear something to get messy in.

In addition to basic sewing, you’ll learn:

- Paint and create unique fabric using water based textile paints

- Assemble and insert a zipper for a custom touch

- Interface fabric to create a stronger pouch

- Adding a lining to your pouch for even more strength

- Sewing machine operation

Sewing and art are lifelong passions for me. Incorporating the two and sharing with young people is what I enjoy most. I teach at summer camps and privately in my Berkeley studio.  For more of my work, check me out at
