The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council, in partnership with KTOO presents Art Glasses, afternoons and evenings of hands-on art, community, and fun!
Not your average "paint and wine night", Art Glasses is a monthly workshop series featuring everything from wreath floral design, printmaking, cooking, & more. These monthly workshops feature your favorite local artists - usually every second Thursday of the month. Create a masterpiece guided by the month’s Featured Artist, and sip a drink while you do it!
Supplies are included with the ticket price and will be live/hybrid/or by Zoom depending on current circumstances and preferences.
UPCOMING ART GLASSES:
Learn the basics of quilting with Reggie Schapp! Tickets are $40-60 depending on if you bring your own supplies.
During this workshop you will learn the basics of strip quilting including cutting, sewing, squaring your piece, easy borders and finishing. Strip piecing is a helpful technique for piecing quilts quickly and easily on your home sewing machine. Some patchwork methods are faster than others, and strip piecing will not only save you time, it will also streamline the creation of your next project whether it is a small project or large.
This is a beginner’s class to discover if you enjoy quilting. We will have rotary mats and cutters, sewing machines (if you have these please bring them) and basic fabrics. You are welcomed to bring your own fabrics. You will be making several squares from three basic patterns: Nine Block used in Irish Chain, a tree square and a log cabin square. A few half yard or quarter yard pieces is all you will need.
