This class gives you a new way to look at your old clothing. Bridgett Artise, author of 25 Ways to Deconstruct, Reinvent, and Recycle Your Wardrobe, which Nylon magazine calls “shopping tips and sewing instructions for the very stylish” and Glamour says “is a totally cool how-to book,” will teach you an innovative and sustainable way to stay fashionable. Discover a unique way of recycling previously unwearable vintage/old clothing by visiting the world of reconstruction. Create sustainable fashion by splicing together collectible garments that have been stained, torn, or banished to the sale bin. Using 25 Ways as a guide, create a new wardrobe using what’s already in your closet!
