Workshop: Fashion ReWorkshop- Holly Stalder and Kate Towers
This special hybrid workshop will focus on the importance of slow and ethical fashion- buying less, repairing and repurposing more. Students will familiarize themselves with sewing machine basics and practice various seams, pressing, surging, and other helpful applications to repurpose, alter, and repair their existing clothing. By the end of the class, students will leave with an original reworked garment that they have created.
One week / HYBRID- July 18, 19, 20, 21 10-2pm
