UPCOMING EVENTS: THE GATHERING

Our annual community picnic is quickly approaching, and we’ve added even more programming to the event this year. We’re offering everything from cocktail workshops, to sewing workshops, to community tours.

New and noteworthy events added to the schedule include a chair workshop taught by Natalie and The School of Making team. Use cotton jersey scraps to repurpose and redesign a ladder-back chair. This workshop is modeled after Alabama Chanin’s Makeshift series and will cover a wide range of topics such as craft, design, and DIY.

The chair workshop takes place in The School of Making’s newly expanded workshop and studio space. Come out for a first preview of the space during our picnic. As our programming grows, we’re adding more interactive experiences to The School of Making like a mending table where you can repair your own garments for free. Scraps and tools will be available to work with—or bring our own.
