Note change of date. This year's Summer Reading Program brings an opportunity for everyone to "Build a Better World" by exploring, participating in, and contributing to a variety of programs (in addition to meeting your reading goals!) This is a wonderful way to meet new people and to contribute to organizations in our community during July and August.

In this class, you will learn how to make a vinyl cut-out design for a tote bag. All materials will be provided. You may choose from a pre-selected design or create your own. Participants will be introduced to creating or customizing a design using Inkscape, cutting out the design using our plotter, and pressing the design on the tote using the heat press.  For those wish to make a t-shirt instead, you must bring a plain t-shirt to class. 

Basic computer skills required. Limited to 10 participants, ages 18 and over.
