For anyone (over 16) who would like to learn to create their own minimalist dress or tunic, from the design concept to the finishing techniques, this is a class not to be missed! No need for a sewing machine - this is a hand sewing class! Our aim is to enjoy the process of slow fashion and to learn design principles with a truly hands-on approach. This 4 hour class will teach you the basics of designing and sewing a simple dress or tunic using just a rectangle of fabric. We will hand sew using a running and back stitch, and will have the option to decorate with contrasting stitch patterns, and go into simple alterations to make your garment truly unique. Basic supplies will be provided, but you will need to purchase your fabric, thread, and needles ahead of time. Bring them from home or purchase the at The Black Squirrel for a 10% discount! *Cancellation Policy* You must cancel your class reservation at least 72 hours in advance in order to receive a full refund. Classes cancelled after the 72 hour limit has passed will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, either by partial refund or by rescheduling.
