Polka Tote Workshop
Polka Tote Workshop
Polka Totes are an original and classic Okayok style and in this workshop, we provide all the materials and equipment for you to design and make your own. Choose your own palette of 16 shades (20 for XL size) from dozens of options of pre-cut circles in neons, neutrals, brights, pastels, sparkle and velvet. We'll help you heat press them onto your selected tote!
The class is open to adults and children ages 7 and up. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The cost is per tote, not per person, so working on a project together is okay!
The project will take 1-2 hours and you will leave the class with your finished tote.
About the Totes
You'll select between a natural cotton or black tote in either a standard or XL tote size. Totes are made of 12 oz 100% cotton heavy canvas. The standard totes are 14” wide, 16” tall, and have a 3" depth. Handles are 24" webbing. XL Totes are 20” wide x 14” tall with a 7” square bottom and 22" canvas straps.
The workshop takes place in the OkayOk studio above our shop at 40 Sousa Mendes Street in Toronto.
There is a flight of stairs to climb to get from the shop to the studio above. Our studio has some tight spaces as much of the room is filled with work tables and equipment. We have tall stools which will be provided for seating - you may choose to sit or stand during the workshop.
What is your mask policy?In accordance with the current government requirements, masking is your choice. The OkayOk studio is small and we will be moving about and amongst each other and social distancing will not be possible. If you want more control over the environment, please book a private Tote Party.
Do I have to know anything about vinyl or a heat press?
Not at all. You just need to be comfortable using scissors. We will take care of all heat pressing during the class.
Can I decorate both sides of my tote?
Polka Tote designs are for one side of the tote.
