Upcycled Clothing and Textiles (F22)

Instructor: Meredith Smith

In this one-day workshop you'll explore the possibilities of remaking repurposing, and recycling garments and household textiles into a new life. Got a favorite sweater that the moths ate holes in? Restyle it into a hole-free new look. Grandma’s tablecloth taking up space in your drawer? Give it a useful life as a stylish frock. That expensive jacket you never wear? Turn it into art-to-wear. Get inspired and motivated to remake, repurpose, and recycle all those rarely or never worn garments and textiles. This class meets in-person at AVA. Click here for a materials list.
