May is here, time to scope out the craft class offerings around southern California! Get to Home Ec in Silverlake tonight for the monthly meeting of the L.A. Modern Quilt Guild, or participate in part 1 of the two-part circle skirt sewing class that starts tomorrow! I've been wanting to take a class at Home Ec for months, and will finally get a chance to on May 21. I'm so excited to be taking their Knock it Off pattern-making class - I'll be sure to share my experience in an upcoming post! Click here to see the full Home Ec class schedule for May.
After the jump, more craft classes available this month around southern California.
This May 15th, join The Craft Kitchen at Seed People's Market in Costa Mesa for a class focused on Quick Crafts - in it, you'll learn how to make soy candles, felt brooches and hairclips, and scrabble tile collage jewelry.
