Workshop: Handsewn Fashion Projects and Techniques with Alexa Stark (2 weeks)
Are you curious about clothing design, conceptualization, and decorative construction? In this two-week workshop, you’ll learn hand sewing techniques that will then be used to rework and decorate the most commonly worn garment: the button-down shirt. Through this project, you will learn how to design, customize, and make new, unique pieces all using materials found at home. Suggested supplies: a pair of your old jeans (with holes if you have ‘em!), a button-down shirt two sizes too big, scissors and needle/thread.
Tuesday and Thursday 2-3:30pm | July 13, 15, 20, 22
