Knapsack Building Workshop with Amy Golembeski
We will start with a basic pattern for a drawstring-satchel knapsack and embellish it with pockets, loops, and straps to suit the designers' tastes. Participants will learn how to transfer the pattern onto fabric, cut the pieces, and sew them together. Participants are encouraged to bring old buttons, scraps of fabric, feathers, beads and any other beautiful materials that are not being used yet to their full potential. Maximum class size.

A native of Brooklyn, Amy Golembeski has been altering and sewing clothes since she was listening to the Backstreet Boys. She made her backpacks throughout school and enjoys finding fun and unusual fabrics to work with.

This workshop is part of Flux Factory's "Domestic Revolution," an educational series focused on different areas of domestic living: food, sewing/mending, bike maintenance & repair. This series considers how everything we do can be a full expression of our most highly-capable selves, making the world exactly as we would like to see it and making ourselves the super-people to enable it.
