We’re thrilled (get it?) to announce a special collection of upcoming classes to get you in gear for all your upcoming Halloween festivities.

Join us on Saturday, October 22, for the opportunity to make your own electrifying decorations and gear, troubleshoot and complete your own DIY costumes, and craft your own piñata from found materials. Read on to learn more and get involved!

10am-1pm: Electrifying eTextiles Halloween Workshop $50 (includes all materials) – Up to 20 students Create a spooky light-up fabric decoration for your wall or door! In this workshop we’ll use Aniomagic’s Sparkle platform to sew LED Halloween decorations that respond to ambient light levels.

11am-2pm: Conquer Your DIY Costume: Troubleshooting & Handholding Session $25 – Up to 8 students Are you interested in making your own crazy Halloween costume but don’t know where to start? Or, perhaps you have everything you need BUT that sparkly superhero cape? Expert seamstress ElizaBeth Rohloff is offering hands-on sessions to help work through your project. She’ll be available to talk through your plans, help recommend fabrics, and come up with easy and cost-effective solutions to help bring your vision to life!

1:30-4:30pm: Create Your Own Halloween Piñata! $25 – Up to 8 students Explore the Zen of Pñata-making with instructor Julian Ansell, using materials harvested from Portland’s poster-laden telephone poles (and for the same price as buying a Piñata from Wal-mart!). Instruction and construction will take place from 1:30-4:30pm, but participants are welcome to continue work at any time during ADX operating hours if they’d like more time to perfect their pieces.
