The Summer Arty Apron Workshop with Diane Ericson

For cooking, gardening or fashion, the apron is a great canvas to let your creative ideas run wild. Bring trims, notions, vintage lace and linens – or maybe some old Levi’s, rolled up paintings on canvas you’ve been storing in the garage – all perfect starters for your unique apron design. You may want to include a theme, such as Asian designs or homage to a beloved pet. Fun and easy to make, participants will get three apron patterns to trace off in class.
