Crafting Your Handmade Wardrobe
August 5, 2018 – August 11, 2018
During this workshop students craft their own garments and gain a deeper understanding about textiles, surface design and their own creativity. It covers basic construction and techniques for cutting and modifying patterns. Participants will learn about fabric choices and discover new ways of mixing prints and textures to fashion truly individual pieces. After planning which handmade elements to add to your wardrobe, you may choose basic pattern choices from simple tunics, shift dresses, skirts, or pants. The patterns, in eight sizes, are provided for students to trace and take home. The class is open to all skill levels, however previous experience using a sewing machine is required.
COURSE FEE: $525
