Lecture: Upcycling with Alternative Fibers

September 20, 2016 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 per person

Melissa Maddonni Haims

As we inch closer and closer to a more sustainable lifestyle, it’s important to learn how to
create new things from what we have on hand. After all, knitting and sewing are not just
hobbies; they are post apocalyptic life skills. These projects focus on reusing what many
people consider trash and turning it into things that are not only beautiful, but usable,
as well. The primary technique focus is on knitting, crochet and sewing but most importantly, the creation of the materials to make with. Follow up workshops include T-Shirt Skirts and T-Shirt Knitting Workshops with Melissa.
