Do you want to make your own clothing designs? Want to create wearable art, but don’t know how to start? Ever looked at a commercial pattern in shock and horror? Or know how to make clothes and want to free yourself from boring designs? Then this is for you.
Staple draping is: Making your own garments on a real live person, using leftover fabrics, a stapler, staples and scissors. When you’re done, take your stapled work of art and use it to make a pattern, take out the staples and sew it together or just cover the staples in duct tape and go out in old school punk rock style. You made it! It’s yours to play with. You can do this even if you’ve never sewn a seam. Or if you sew all the time and are tired of all the rules.
For your $50 dollars (or $45 for Machine Project members), you get the class plus a stapler, scissors, staples and your own stapled garment to keep.
Come play and learn a skill with LAVA member A. Laura Brody that will keep you re*making for a lifetime.
