Chinese New Year/Alabama Chanin T-shirt Project

  • The Creativity Caravan 28 South Fullerton Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

Join Modern Maker Paige Sato for this exciting slow design sewing workshop for everyone! That's right, EVERYONE! Beginners included. You don't have to be an expert sewist to have a great time learning the Alabama Chanin technique. We'll learn the planning, cutting, stenciling, and stitching process to create a fabulous Chinese New Year T-shirt together. Discover more about Natalie Chanin, the slow stitching pioneer whose singular approach to hand sewing, working with organic cotton, and building community values is the inspiration for this workshop.  

$35*, Ages 14+

*Participants must bring two 100% cotton T-shirts (colors should vary to create layered effect. Used/recycled Ts are perfect!). All other materials will be supplied.
