9:00–12:00 pm

Instructor: Norm Knott

IDPH and CDC guidelines about face masks will be observed.

Do you have a favorite, outdated piece of clothing that you just can’t part with? Turn it into a one-of-a-kind wearable “art piece.” In this class, you will create your own design pattern, learn how to carve it into a synthetic block, and imprint it onto your piece of clothing. The imprints can then be embellished with paint, fabric paint/glitter, and markers during our process. Additional sewing (trim, quilting, etc.) can be completed at home afterward. When finished…voila!!! A new fashion statement, piece of art, and recycled inspiration for others! 

Bring some test scraps of material to practice on and one item of used fabric clothing: jeans, t-shirts, etc. (or even canvas shoes if you’re up for a challenge). If you don’t already have something at home, maybe you find something at the Glitzy Garage Sale or thrift store.  Also, feel free to bring any of your own embellishments. Norm will bring his collection of vintage Asian woodblocks. All embellishing supplies provided.
