Spend the week learning the entire process of upcycle fashion design, from envisioning, to selecting materials, to putting it all together and showing it off! Leave with your fully designed garment and new sewing skills!
Gather inspiration from nature, magazines, and the materials themselves, then talk about where ideas come from and what we want to express. Spend time drawing, playing with and choosing the materials, then start on a sewing project to get familiar with sewing machines and hand sewing. Spend the rest of the time bringing your upcycle designs to life!
Everyone will create their own upcycled garment which is an expression of themselves, and show it off to their friends and families on the last day!
Materials: Please bring a sketch pad, something from nature (or photo or drawing of something) that inspires you (leaves, pine cones, seeds, feathers, flowers, bark, a bug, rocks, whatever you find interesting), and your own clothing to alter/transform (we’ll have materials for you as well).
