Where: Alpine Luddites studio, Westmore Vermont

Project:fanny pack or roll top day pack.

Cost: $650

Space: limited to three students




This is a new class to teach the basics of making your own outdoor gear. Taught over 2 days. it will cover the same topics as the regular pack making class but build a simpler project; either a custom fanny pack or the roll top day pack we originally designed for my Sterling college class. with a simpler sewing project this is the perfect class to try it out. 

  • No prior sewing experience needed!
  • The class will introduce you to industrial sewing machines, techniques, how to make and adjust  patterns 
  • I'll walk you through making a pattern to fit you, how to sew, install zippers, fabric selection and the details that go into making long lasting gear.
  • you get to make your own pack!
  • throughout the class i'll answer any questions about any bags or packs I build
  • If it get too tricky I'll lend a hand and make sure you leave with a great pack.

I'll follow up class registration with an informational email.
