Gardening is an Art!  Let’s dig in

Do you love gardening or aspire for a green thumb? Have you heard of “plant propagation” but are still scratching your head wanting to better understand?

The Amoeba Art Collective is pleased to offer you a chance to learn more with Chez Flora!

 

Plant propagation is the technique of creating new plants from existing plants and this be done in a number of ways.  We will introduce clipping and seeding and discuss rooting hormones and soil mixes.

 

Plant Propagation is a great skill to have because you can make lots of new plants for your garden rather than having to purchase them from a nursery (saving you money). It’s also nice to propagate plants and give them to friends and family as presents.  Hello thoughtful gift!

 

Achieve the satisfaction knowing you have fostered new plants, which is probably one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening. 

Take home your beautiful creations in adorable jars.  Light refreshments offered.  All ages and skill levels welcome.

Fashion Pattern Cutting 101: Recreate Your Favorite T-shirt

 

In sewing and fashion design, a pattern is the template from which the parts of a garment are traced onto fabric before being cut-out and assembled.

 

Learn the step-by-step method to the pattern cutting process, finding inspiration from your favorite T-shirt to create a new, beautiful finished product made from Jersey Knit.

 

Please bring (but do not wear) your favorite T-shirt to use as a base pattern for this class.  You will create your own new shirt that fits you just the way you like.  After the class, your pattern will be sent to our seamstress and created based off your pattern.

From her own lips:

“Owning my own clothing brand has given me the freedom and happiness I had always hoped to find”

I am highly inspired by the women in my life and those I come into contact with. I love to listen to their opinions and struggles surrounding clothing. It made me  challenge myself to come up with a solution. Being a curvy woman myself, I know the struggle of never being able to find a good fit.  I am determined to be the change in the industry and world for plus size women. It brings me great joy to create the perfect garment to make a woman feels strong and confident.
