What did you do on the weekend??
On December 17 & 18, SUS 014: Sustainable Textiles: Sourcing & Direct Application students learned all about sustainable fabrics and fibers, how to dye them, and how to source them with Instructor Rachel Miller. Everyone walked away with beautiful colorful swatches and lots of notes.
It looked like educational fun, so I might see you in class this Spring!

Come join us for the SMARTER workshop where fun meets facts. This workshop will show you just what to do with that sweater you don’t want to get rid of but will never wear, or show you what you can make from that scrap of fabric that you just can’t bear to throw out all the while learning what makes sustainable design sustainable.
