Oct 15, 2023, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Small Space Art Collective, 210 Calle de Los Molinos, San Clemente, CA 92672, USA

About the event

Learn to upcycle socks to create stuffed beings. The process is spontaneous and organic, a conversation with color and form, where strong personalities evolve.

Collect fun socks and knit gloves (colored, striped, patterned) of any size (including children and babies) to bring. Embroidery thread, needles, and stuffing will be provided, but feel free to bring materials from home. Look through your random buttons, beads, old/broken jewelry, single earrings, and any other ephemera you might want to add.

Helen Seigel is a local artist and art educator who has spent four decades passionately focused on facilitating the creativity of her students and living in her own artistic practice, exploring a variety of quirky iterations.

This class is limited to 10 participants.

This embroidery class was perfect!  The space is inviting and sparks creativity.  Cecilia is a skilled and effective teacher.  She provides you a cute little kit with everything you need! Incredibly grateful for Cecilia to hold the space for some therapeutic making time, community, and skills that I can take with me. Thank you, thank you!

"I have only attended the Fiber Club and Marbling Workshop so far am so inspired!! Small Space Collective is such a treasure in our town. San Clemente has been needing something like this for a long time. The two women who run this studio have an incredible vision. They are building a wonderful community of artists and crafters who can share and learn from each other."

"Small Space Collective is such a gem!! I was so happy to find a place to go do small artsy projects. I love that you don't have to sign up for multiple weeks but that you can just pick the workshops that you would like to go and it's easier with me with my schedule that varies all the time. I am already signing up for the next fun workshop."
