Intuit Will Teach You How to Make a Holiday Sock Monkey That Foams at the Mouth

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Intuit's upcoming workshop will teach you how to turn old sweaters, socks, and fabrics into upcycled monkeys. This is an amazing opportunity to make a plush monkey for yourself or as a gift for a loved one this holiday season. The DIY sock puppet class workshop will be lead by sock monkey enthusiast Jerry Stefl, who is also an Associate Professor of Art Education at SAIC. Participants are encouraged to bring their own old sweaters or socks, but if you don't have old socks you can dig through the pile of socks they have in the gallery. All other supplies including glitter, buttons, sequins, bottle caps, pipe cleaner and yarn will be provided. The cost for the workshop is $40 for non-members or $30 for members which includes Thai food for lunch.
