Are there pieces in your closet that you still love but don’t love to wear anymore? That lonely long skirt that you might wear, if it were magically made into a pencil skirt... or that pair of holey jeans that look as if altered by tossing in front of a firing squad... or the dress that fits only after performing a circus-ready contortion routine... In this new class, Supreme Crafter and Clothing Re-Animator Nicole Stevenson teaches you to give new life to these forgotten clothing gems as you learn some basic techniques for sewing, applique, ruching, screen printing and more. Explore design and composition as you become the Re-Animator of your closet’s graveyard section! Well, maybe Re-Animator isn’t exactly the term we should use...
none, but some sewing experience would be very helpful. Nicole will help out with sewing machines for any sewing novices.
bring 3-6 articles of clothing to reconstruct and any additional materials (you will have an opportunity to work on a few of these pieces, but not all. A good selection is necessary!) We will also have fabrics and notions.
