Sustainable Textiles 2019
Common Ground Farm and Textile Lab work in partnership to bring workshops that engage our community to learn how to repair, repurpose, and reinvent old clothing through the use of natural dyeing and textile repurposing techniques.
Financial assistance is available for each workshop in this series. Contact Sember at email@example.com for more information.
October 6th - 11 AM to 1 PM at the Beacon Farmers’ Market, Beacon, NY
Market-goers will be encouraged to bring old jeans, bags, sweaters, or anything else that needs to be patched, darned, or felted. Participants will learn how to use Japanese Sashiko and Improvisational Stitching sewing techniques and needle felting techniques to give new life to old clothes.
