Instructors: Roanne Kolvenbach & Anna Poor
July 3 - 7
10am - 12pm
Always wanted to learn to design and make your own clothes? We'll get you started with the basics. At the end of 4 classes you will have created your own unique shirt, dress or apron. We will guide you through the process of taking and translating your measurements into a simple pattern, basic sewing machine function, pinning and cutting out your pattern pieces and constructing your garment to wear home!
Materials: We will provide an array of fabric choices but students are encouraged to bring their own fabrics or clothing to deconstruct, share and recycle.
