January is International Creativity Month! We will launch the New Year by exploring the connections between play and creativity. Play is the oldest form of learning know to the human race. The word "play"​ usually refers to kids but it is an ageless exercise. When we play the outcomes are instinctive, intuitive, natural, and creative. When we focus on process rather than product, and allow ourselves to get messy and make mistakes, wonderful surprises tend to happen. Come join us in January with "permission to play" and experiment with a variety of materials to explore your power of creativity.

$0 SSL Residents | $40 for non-residents. Class fees must be paid separately on the City's website by clicking here. Questions? Contact John Boyack at 801-483-6018 or jboyack@sslc.gov.

No experience required. Students will learn hand sewing skills and fabric composition and create a sewn fabric collage! Using a variety of cloth materials we will create an image of a landscape (cityscape, cave, or seascape, etc.) and make it into a sewn tapestry.
 

This class explores creative re-use of fabric scraps and composition, and is a fun, free-form way to learn and enhance sewing skills. The finished piece can be hung on the wall, framed, or even sewn into a garment. Students are welcome to bring fabric scraps and any beads or items to sew on as finishing touches, but there will be plenty of fabric and tools provided as well.
