Tote bag made from an upcycled denim pant leg

“The name of the Game is re-use.”

Ages 10-16

9:00am – 4:00pm (after care available from 4pm to 5pm)

Get your kids thinking outside the box when it comes to self-expression through everyday fashion. While we will use basic hand and machine sewing, students will be introduced to bigger tools like the laser cutter, vinyl cutter, and heat press to help achieve their creative visions. Students will be exploring T-shirt and denim reconstruction, plus the art of accessorizing. Transform “hand-me-downs” into runway-ready style for the new school year! Students will create several garments and accessories. All materials included.
