Have some old T-shirts you love but no longer wear? Or has your child outgrown some favorite shirts that you’d like to keep for posterity? 

Discover how to create your own fun and personalized T-shirt quilt on Wednesday, May 17 at 6 p.m. in the Idea Studio. This will be a lecture; participants will not be creating a T-shirt quilt at this time.

Idea Studio staff will guide you through the entire process, with helpful hints and tricks as well as an overview of the supplies you will need to make your own quilt. Participants also will be able to view examples of completed T-shirt quilts, and learn about the equipment available in the Idea Studio for such a project.

Registration is open now to participate by visiting calendar.fdlpl.org.

Then, on Wednesday, May 24 at 6 p.m. in the Idea Studio, learn about Lego dot printmaking to create fun relief prints during a meeting of the Fond du Lac Press Club (for Printmakers). See informal demonstrations and learn different printing techniques to try for free.

No experience necessary for this free program. The program is designed for adults and teens age 13+; younger children are allowed with a parent or caregiver.

Interested in learning about 3-D modeling? Discover the basics of TinkerCAD during Tutorial Tuesday on May 30 at 5 p.m. in the Idea Studio. This program is a free, web-based workspace. During this program, learn the basics of this simple-to-use yet capable-of-advanced design software. Idea Studio staff will even load a design into our 3-D printing software and get it going on one of our Prusa i3 MK3S printers.

Register starting May 16 at calendar.fdlpl.org to participate.

Group badging opportunities also are available at the Idea Studio. Check calendar.fdlpl.org for sessions as they become available.
