Description: In this hands-on camp we will focus on the process of upcycle fashion design – taking existing clothing and reinventing it to be uniquely your own! We’ll walk through the process of envisioning your design, selecting the right materials, putting it all together, and of course showing it off! Leave with the skills to create your own unique wardrobe, and inspiration for more. Everyone will create their own upcycled garment or outfit which is an expression of themselves, and show it off to their friends and families on the last day!
 
Participant Materials & Requirements: No previous sewing experience necessary. Please bring a sketch pad, pictures or magazine clippings that inspire you, and your own clothing to alter/transform (we’ll have materials for you as well).  Don’t forget a snack, lunch, and water.
