Classes Up Close: Spring Sew!


We have just two more “Classes Up Close” posts left. This one is focusing on our Spring Sewing classes, and the next will be focused on our Fundamentals of Drawing classes  – both of which have been added later in the season, by request! Classes are filling up and many will be closed soon- register now to reserve your spot!


“Create It” classes with A Work in Progress are for those students who consider themselves very hands-on. Our sewing classes, below, are being added this spring by popular demand. Many have watched in awe as our costume department has designed and created the costumes for our productions over the years. Now, students can learn for themselves, and create their own unique piece under the guidance of Pam Macbeth (read more about Pam here).

All classes, below, will meet at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Attleboro.
