Mock Molas!

June 18, 9:30AM-4:30PM

Location: TBD, In-person

The Mola is a beautiful and colorful art design that is originally from the Kuni people of Panama. Traditionally done with lots of colors, lots of layers of fabric and lots of laborious teeny-tiny needle-turn hand stitches! Our class project will be a Modified Mola that will have the flavor of the original without all of the work.

This is a handwork class, so, no machines. Bring your thimbles and prepare to get addicted to this colorful, fun and very easy technique!

Required kit: $20, collected during class.
