Thermofax screen printing - Susan Infante - Learn proper printing techniques using thermofax screens and textile paints.
Sumi Books - Carol Kazwick - Learn the ancient (but easy!) art of Japanese sumi marbling. Then use your beautiful paper to create a lovely pamphlet stitch journal for all your thoughts or to-do lists.
Blacksmithing (Weather permitting) - Dan Caldwell - Create an iron hook (must hand good arm and hand strength. Dress for working in an outdoor barn that is heated minimally)
Felting - Lela Leutger - Needle felting is fun and it’s a great way to make both decorative and functional works of art. In fact, the possibilities are endless. Get a start making felted flowers that are perfect for decorating your clothing or your home.
Chain Maille Bracelet - Michele O'Reilly - Come learn the technique of linking rings to make designs of color. We will be working with a basic pattern for all to learn and enjoy - No previous experience needed. You will learn to work with 2 pliers in your hands and in no time will have all your loops linked into a custom chain to wear home for all to admire.
Ridgid Heddle Weaving - Robin Schoenburg - Learn how to weave a placemat on the ridgid heddle loom.
Metal clay - Kathy Steinbring - Using putty-like metal clay, create a reversible pendant or charm with multiple textures. See a demonstration of torch firing, which transforms the putty-like creation into solid silver. You will need to pick-up your fired and polished creation at a later date.
