In Milda's class, you will learn how to creatively alter and repurpose clothing using a variety of “visible mending” techniques. Taking influence from Japanese sashiko, American quilt-making, and the current fiber art trend, you'll be guided through this meditative hand-sewn practice to enhance and make your garments a work of art. All Materials are included, however, students are encouraged to bring their torn, stained or gently used garments that are in need of repair/alteration. Woven (non-stretch) items preferred.
Alternative Alterations is Sunday, November 20th from 11a-2p. Sign up here!
