Oct/Nov 2012: New Courses Offered in Marquette:
October 1/8/15th 6-8pm “REdesign Your Wardrobe”: Do you have a closet full of old clothes or a trunk full of heirlooms in the attic gathering dust? Is living a green lifestyle important to you but you don’t know how that translates to fashion? This workshop will teach you how to rethink and redesign everyday objects into wearable, unique and stylish pieces. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to: be knowledgable about what eco-fashion/upcycling is, rethink how old items in your closet can be made new, actually create a piece of your own to take home!
Saturday, November 10th 1-3pm “How to Make a Tshirt Headband” : A class perfect for all ages (8yrs+) this is a class for children and their parents, highschoolers/NMU students who want to show team spirit, men to transform a harley tshirt into a bandana, or anyone who has old tshirts lying around! I will teach you step-by-step how to upcycle your old tshirt into a new headband. Have a favorite logo or design on your tshirts that you want to continue to wear or display – love cutting up old things and making them brand new? Then this is the class for you. Bring your own tshirts; scissors, pins, and hand needles and thread are provided.
