Spring has sprung at Lakeside Artisans, 191 W. First St., Oswego.

Classes for the month of May include hand-painted silk scarves, sewn spring bags and hand painted papier mache boxes.

Cindy Schmidt is teaching a class in hand painted silk scarves from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 3. Create your own wearable art to brighten up your spring.

There is a class limit of six students. All materials will be provided.

Make a fashionable spring bag in a class offered at Lakeside Artisans from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday May 8.

The instructor, Kathy Fenlon will guide students in selecting fabric to design their own unique bag. There is a limit of four students per class.

Students will select from a variety of fabric and make the bag in class. The bag includes an easy (practically fool proof) way to install a zipper. These bags make great gifts!

Students may bring their own portable sewing machine if they have one. A machine will be provided for students who do not have one to bring.

General knowledge of operating a sewing machine is helpful — the sewing is easy and basic.

Use bright spring colors and motifs to decorate two small papier mache boxes in a class with Lakeside Artisans’ artist Michele Southgate. The class will meet from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 17.

The class fee of $45 includes all supplies to make the items and a non-refundable registration fee of $10 per participant.
