Upcycled T-Shirts and Tank Tops • December 8

, ,

Wednesday, December 8, 6 – 9 pm

Sophia Munic

Use up scraps, fabric, and old clothing to create a T-shirt or tanktop! This workshop will show you how to draft a simple pattern from a preexisting t-shirt to reconstruct a unique top based on the fabric scraps and a t-shirt that you cut up in class. Examples of sewists that upcycle fabric into eclectic clothing will be shared, to help you think sustainably and creatively with the excess fabric you have on hand. This class will use gender neutral language to talk about clothing and encourage participants to do the same. Students need to bring their own sewing machine, in good working condition. Previous sewing experience required, including how to use a sewing machine, how to straight stitch, back stitch, zig zag stitch, and wind bobbins. Participants should feel confident using scissors.

This is an in-person class, which requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Click here to submit your proof of vaccination.

Instructor Bio:

Sophia Munic (she/they) is a multimedia artist enthralled by all things “play”. Working predominantly with fiber to extend the vocabulary of whimsy, they create work that theorizes what inclusive and gender-fluid childhood toys could look like. Munic often creates interactive work as a way for participants to reconnect to their inner child while exploring the “function” of the object itself. Their interests also include the realms of recycling fabrics and upcycling clothing. sophiamunic.com
