Work Shirt For Artisans
October 13, 2019 – October 19, 2019
Traditionally used in rural life in Scandinavia since the 1700s, today the work shirt is ideal for artists and artisans. The shape is based on squares and rectangles sewn together following logical geometry. Students will create their own unique shirt with expert guidance by adjusting the pattern to insure a comfortable fit and adding individual finishing touches while using natural fiber striped fabric. At workshop end, participants will create a one-of-a-kind artisan work shirt and a personalized pattern for future projects. Beginners are introduced to new skills and experienced stitchers will advance their traditional shirt making techniques. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
