Wearable Extravaganza! Garment Construction Intensive
April 29-May 3 (Mon – Fri)
Imagine having jacket patterns that are designed to fit YOUR body perfectly! You won’t believe the difference it makes. This is a terrific class for those wanting to learn to fit and sew clothing from their handwoven, hand-printed, dyed, quilted, felted or just commercial fabric, as well as for those more experienced students wanting polished and professional results. New students will construct a basic custom-fit unlined jacket from fabric they bring with them, while learning all sorts of inspiring construction techniques to make their garments reflect their creativity. Returning students who have already made a jacket with Daryl in any other class may opt to bring their own patterns and agenda. All levels are welcome.
Students should have basic sewing skills and be able to use a sewing machine.
