In celebration of the relocation and expansion of our textiles department, we will be hosting our first monthly textiles meetup to promote and support fiber techniques in an open community atmosphere. From hand stitches and knitting to laser cut leather and digital embroidery - come learn new techniques from the traditional to the tech-based, share your skills and make cool things! All experience levels are welcome!
This month we are pleased to host Bonnie MacAllister, local textiles artist and NextFab member. Bonnie will discuss her work and share the process behind her unique embroidered portraits. This discussion will be followed by a live demo on her spinning wheel. Those interested can purchase the materials needed for a needle felting workshop to learn how to shape wool into a small animal or wearable bracelet! Come for the crafting, stay for the community, and leave with some inspiration and new knowledge.
Coworking at 2025 Washington Ave will be closed from 9:30 am - 1:00 pm on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4TH for a private event. Electronics, 2D, and Lasers & 3D will be accessible during the event.
