About the event
Calling all teens! Join us for some Friday fun and make a beginner friendly tote bag out of a pair of jeans! Grab your friend to sew with you! Why not?
Students will learn how to upcycle old jeans into a reusable bag! This is a great way to keep waste out of the landfill and repurpose something that can continue to be valuable for years. In this "teen only" class, students ages 14-17, will get creative and stitch up a cross body bag using a pair of (no longer loved/worn) jeans. Students will learn how to deconstruct jeans, reconstruct using a sewing machine, and leave with an upcycled cross body bag ready to carry all the things.
Join us for a one-of-a-kind teen sewing workshop and unleash your creativity as you transform old jeans into stylish tote bags! Discover the art of upcycling and repurposing, as you breathe new life into discarded denim, while crafting a trendy accessory that perfectly complements your unique style.
In this exciting hands-on workshop, you'll learn essential sewing techniques from our skilled instructor, who will guide you through every step of the process. From measuring and cutting the denim to stitching and embellishing, you'll gain the skills needed to fashion a fashionable and functional bag that showcases your individuality.
Immerse yourself in a vibrant atmosphere where creativity knows no bounds. Engage with fellow teen fashion enthusiasts, exchange ideas, and draw inspiration from the collective energy of like-minded individuals. With an array of colorful threads, playful patches, and eye-catching decorations at your disposal, you'll have the freedom to customize your tote bag, making it truly one-of-a-kind.
Take pride in your eco-friendly creation as you contribute to a sustainable future, reimagining the potential of everyday materials. With a newfound appreciation for the art of repurposing, you'll leave this workshop with a practical accessory that exudes both style and substance.
So, whether you're a sewing novice or a budding fashionista, join us for an unforgettable experience that blends creativity, craftsmanship, and sustainability. Embrace the thrill of transforming old jeans into a fashionable masterpiece and make a statement with your very own handmade jeans tote bag. Reserve your spot now and let your creativity soar!
This class is designed for beginner sewists and basic knowledge of using a sewing machine is necessary. Students will work at their own pace during class using studio machines.
