    Mend, Hem & Sew (101)

    Does your favorite T-shirt have a hole or a busted seam? Did your best dress or tank top break a strap? Have a pair of pants you'd like to learn to hem?

    Come to The MINT and learn how to use a sewing machine and quickly fix, hem and modify all your favorite fashion pieces!!

    In this class students will be focusing on building their skills on the sewing machine by making a reusable shopping bag.

    Students will receive:

    • An introduction to the features of the textiles lab, different parts of the sewing machines, basic setup.
    •  An overview of how to operate a sewing machine. Loading thread, bobbins, material; setting stitch type; moving fabric through the machine

    Learn the basics of screen printing using a stencil technique

    (as opposed to a photographic technique).

    This hands-on demo will show you the steps required to print single color designs on your own tee shirts, tote bags, and more!

    All are welcome. No prior experience with screen printing necessary.

    This is a single-session hands-on demo.

    If time allows, participants will be supported in cutting a design of their own, so bring your designs just in case. 

    We will have fabric as part of the demo process. Bringing some old T-Shirts to try it out is encouraged!
