Sewing Open Workshop
In this open-format class, students make projects of their choice. The instructor provides guidance on design, construction and embellishment based on individual student needs, and students draw upon each other’s expertise. Students often stay for multiple semesters, enjoying the camaraderie of the shop and progressing to more ambitious projects over time. (Note: No large draperies.)
