Flask is a popular Python package for developing web applications. Flask is considered a “micro” framework with a simple core and numerous extensions for database integration, form validation, authentication and more.
During the class Bruce will demonstrate a simple website using Flask in a Python virtual environment. Topics will include the model-view-controller (MVC) paradigm, Jinja2 templates and if time permits, integrating a simple SQLite database using SQLAlchemy.
– Some prior knowledge of Python
– Bring a personal laptop if you want to create the website during the class. (Code will be provided.)

i3 member Ashley hosted two classes to introduce the new (to i3) Letterpress. The press is a Line-O-Scribe Show Card Writer. The press was built sometime between 1920 and 1940 in Adrian MI.
The class demonstrated basic letterpress techniques and printing. The students picked a Valentine’s Day theme pattern to print. Then the pattern was reversed and carved into linoleum blocks. Different colored inks and paper card stock are picked to create hand made Valentine’s Day cards. The linoleum blocks are put on the press, ink rolled onto the block, and pressure applied to create beautiful cards.

Knitting is a super relaxing craft that will let you express your creativity and make cozy accessories and clothing in just about any color, texture, and design imaginable. Instructor Jamie Burdeski will teach you the basics if you’ve never touched a knitting needle before, or help you with your project if you have something unfinished that’s been languishing in a closet for years. If this is your first project, Jamie will introduce a basic scarf pattern and tell you how you can customize it to fit your style. Snacks and drinks will be provided in this relaxing workshop designed to make you more comfortable working with yarn.
