Knit Your Feelings students
It’s! summer! tiiiime! Best way to stay cool, look cool and make cool shtuff? Studio School’s summer session! We can’t promise it won’t be messy, but we can guarantee no-SPF-needed creating. (Daily sun protection is encouraged, but we’re not dermatologists, so do what you want.)
Registration is open and ready, friends. Below you’ll find a handy roundup of four- and eight-week classes and workshops — all primed for you to pick your popsicle. (Poison sends the wrong message.)
The I’d Knit That icon that is Kendall Ross is back again with another round of Knit Your Feelings, guiding students through the tips and tricks of her text-based style, perfect for both never knitters and knitting experts. Sewing’s near-cult leader, Amber Layne, hosts four sewing and one t-shirt quilting class this term — nab your spot quick; some are already sold out! If you’re into loom weaving, Beyond the Basics is made for you, providing one-on-one support and guidance from an expert.
Late summer’s four-week offerings are giving fashion with Upcycle Shirts and Visible Mending, showing how sustainability and art-making can be found right inside your closet.
Three eight-week Intro to Ceramics courses top this season’s charts. New to clay? Don’t worry, our instructors will be gentle! Learn hand building techniques to create sculptural and functional vessels, then move onto the wheel. A four-week advanced throwing class in August encourages ceramics for giants (re: make big pots). Throw big stuff. Wok with Liv Egan. Enough said, yeah? Bonus: A special Nerikomi hand building class brings marbling and striped clay creations.
We’re entering the realm of bittersweet here, friends. Sweet? Bad at Drawing makes another appearance with a flair for the botanical, printmaking is becoming a staple, selfie portraiture has entered the chat, and Sylvie Mayer teaches wildflower watercoloring (have you seen her edibleOKC issue?!). Bitter? Its Mayer’s last class with us, so get in and learn from the painting gem herself!
Your choice of medium for one (to two) night(s) only! Make A Ceramic Pie Plate, Herb/Windowsill Planter or Berry Bowl with Egan, re-enact Ghost (without the murder, with clothes on) for a date night, or sign up for the longest title of a workshop ever, Make A Vase and Then Arrange Flowers for that Vase! Bring a Ross-inspired text-embroidered work home, or get creative in Fabric Tattoos, cocktails or fave toys.
Popular classes and workshops fill fast, so get to registering. We’ll meet you in the studios.
