a workshop for the next generation of designers
Monday, July 8 - Thursday, July 11

Let's train the next generation of designers!
This four-day intensive introduces middle school students (grades 6 - 9) to the basics of sewing and fashion design in the inspiring Gallery at 3S Artspace.

Using David Bowie and the Moon landing as style inspiration, students will explore basic sewing tools and skills, fabric identification, manipulation, and design thinking-- all culminating in an event for friends and family.

Fashion ReWERKED is presented by 3S Artspace, in partnership with Recovergirl.
