Art to Wear: Sustainable Textiles

Art to Wear: Sustainable Textiles

Creative mending, embellishing and altering practices are having a renaissance as we begin to look for ways to counter the wasteful and harmful impacts of the textile industry. In this empowering exploration, we will use sashiko, a running stitch used traditionally for quilting and mending in Japan, along with simple hand embroidery techniques. Patching, adding new fabrics to a garment, make structural changes, and creating our own textiles can all create storytelling opportunities and change our relationship to our clothing.

We will go on a thrifting mission, add garments and fabric brought from home and discover how to bring new meaning and beauty to second hand garments together in the sewing studio,

Suzanne brings her signature passion and generosity along with decades of experience with composition, colour, texture and creative process to this project and will support each student to celebrate the joy of altered clothing in their own way. Sewing together has always been a way to connect and share and, sometimes, it can be a revolution.
