HolidayCouple.jpgHappy Holidays, everyone!!  Yes, again, already!!  Which means it’s time to upload my favorite Holiday Couple graphic, so I hope you find them as amusing as I do ; )

I’m not sure where 2019 went, but I hope yours included a good amount of creative time with your favorite African fabrics ; )  If you fell a bit short of your creative goals, there’s still time to immerse yourself at the CE Studio.


Our December thru February workshop schedule gives you several chances to end 2019 and begin 2020 with an interesting project in hand!  New to the lineup is our Free Spirit Doll.  

Choose your batik or African print, and your natural hairstyle – Bantu knots, locks, braids, Afro – then embellish as you like. The class makes a fun Girls’ Night Out project, or even a Mommy & Me creative session.

You’ll also find studio favorites including the String Quilt, Corded Organizer, Color Block Batik Bag, Waistbeads and more, all offered at various dates and times. See you soon!  Register by phone at 866-MUDCLOTH, in person at the studio, or online at CulturedExpressions (click on Shop Online / Workshops)

And be sure to join us at the studio December 13 & 14, 2019 from 1-4 pm for Holiday Gift Make & Takes — Drop in and make your choice of five fast, fun gifts, priced from $5 to $25 each.  Make one, two, or all of them, including: Brass & Bead Necklace, Wine Glass Charms, Batik Bookmarks, Fabric Coasters, Embellished Pouch Necklace.

Following a full summer of events, I decided it’s time to put together SEW BASIC, an introductory 2-day “True Beginners” workshop on october 18-19, 2014, with a focus on learning your sewing machine, and the completion of a simple Afrocentric sewing project like a pillow or tote — projects like these:

SewBasicProjectsUnlike  other CE workshops, SEW BASIC is designed for people who don’t know how to sew yet, but want to learn and already own their own machine.   If you’ve been wanting to learn, this is the perfect opportunity to dive in.  By the end of the two day workshop, you’ll know your machine and immerse yourself in gorgeous African fabrics to complete at least one project – join us!  You can also purchase additional fabrics, supplies and kits to keep up with yoru new passion – mudcloth from Mali, African cotton prints, jacquard batiks from Ghana, kuba clothfrom central Africa, and more!
