DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – If you’ve been to the Bishop Arts District you know there are all kinds of cool art, clothes, and home décor to buy. But the Dallas neighborhood also inspires people to create for themselves.

Julie McCullough opened Make and Made in 2005. “The classes we offer are in sewing and screen printing and crafting in general; just a modern take on crafting and design,” McCullough said.

Make and Made offers about 40 different classes. McCullough said people can come in and take classes ranging from a few hours to a few weeks, depending on how serious people are about their craft.

Customer Kathi Kibbel hasn’t sewn in years. “There’s no embarrassment about it because everybody’s in the same boat here; we’re all just trying to figure it out,” Kibbel said.

Within an hour they figured it out. “I didn’t know I could sew this well and look even my seams are nice,” Kibbel said.

On the other side of town, there’s another creative learning center. Shannon Driscoll, owner of Oil & Cotton, said she opened this creative exchange to teach art classes to both children and adults. “We start at age 2 and go all the way up,” Driscoll said.

But it’s not just art; they teach everything from basket weaving to beer brewing. For the students at either place, it’s more than creating art, it’s about creating confidence.

“Now I want to sew a skirt or something,” Kibbel said. “I think I can do it.”
