In this workshop you will learn the physics of hand sewing and the Alabama Chanin techniques of Natalie Chanin. We will be making beautiful cozy ponchos that would be a perfect gift, but let's face it, we will want to keep them for ourselves. We will be aiming to finish a single design element on our pieces, but you will learn the skills, so if you want to continue to embellish at home, you will be able to.
All materials will be provided.
This workshop is for beginners and experienced sewers alike.
This workshop will be taught by local New Boston creative, Tina Mappus. She is an avid sewer, knitter, and wife and mom to her husband and two boys.

In this workshop, Monica will discuss basic linoleum block carving techniques, tools, materials, and printing methods. Each participant will design and draw their own block, spend time carving it by hand with guidance from the instructor, ink and print, and leave with finished prints and cards to take home. You’ll leave with your finished block as well, so you’ll be able to print from it in the future! Monica will provide information on where to purchase block printing supplies, should you wish to continue practicing after the class. Cost of materials is included in course registration.
Monica Rico is a printmaker, barefoot farmer, and mother of boys at Wood Thrush Farm in Henniker, NH. She makes linocut relief prints on note cards, journals, various sized matted prints, clothing, and textiles. Her work is drawn directly onto linoleum blocks, carved by hand, and individually inked and hand-printed. Each print is an original work and each is slightly different from the next.
