Gettin' Made: August Craft Classes
The last month of summer is upon us, and if you're looking for a way to get your learn on before heading back to school next month we've got you covered with a whole slew of craft classes available in and around Orange County!
Look at all the great things you can learn how to make at The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica this month!
Santa Monica's Urban Craft Center never disappoints with a schedule chock full of new skills to pick up. This month includes more basic feeling classes like Candlemaking, Intro to Knitting, and Embroidery 101, as well as more advanced-sounding, exotic classes like creating jewelry that has a scientific molecular feel, Circuit Bending 101, and a mysterious class called Trapunto. The class description describes Trapunto as a "quilting technique right out of the 70's", where students will create a panel with several raised images within it.

After the jump, more crafty classes taking place this month in Orange County (and beyond).
There's fresh summer-feeling workshops being held at The Road Less Traveled in Santa Ana this month, too. Take a walk and learn about foraged foods or reconnect with nature by signing up for the combination writing workshop and picnic. Feeling a little more ambitious? Sign up to learn how to weld a garden sculpture from scrap metal! Click here for The Road Less Traveled's complete class listings. (Disclosure alert - Delilah Snell of The Road Less Traveled is significantly othered with OC Weekly's own Gustavo Arellano.)
