Learn To Upcyle Do you have an old pair of jeans, curtains or tablecloth you can’t bear to part with but are too embarrassed to show off in mixed company?

With a few snips and a little bit of stitching, sew a skirt that will fit your body better than ready to wear garments. Once you’ve constructed your garment, you’ll stamp, paint, stitch and add other embellishments to your skirt to create a unique piece of wearable art.

This class is great for all levels of experience. Hand sewing and machine sewing experience is helpful but not
required.
