Empowering Individuality and Sustainability in Garment Making
Led by Miho Suzuki
“Color is the soul of Nature . . . and when we experience color we participate in this soul.”
— Rudolf Steiner
We will design and sew garments using four natural fibers (cotton, linen, wool and silk) to create four items for a complete outfit. Drafting simple patterns and sewing by hand with some machine sewing will give us an opportunity for meditative work and a chance to center ourselves. Throughout the year we will experience different sewing techniques, plant dyeing, embroidery and nuno felting to create our own unique fabric for our garments.
Each Saturday art and/or movement classes will be offered to accompany the handwork sessions and bring enlivening impulses to each individual as well as the group.
This course, which is open to beginners and experienced fiber artisans alike, meets on ten Saturdays over the course of the year. The 2020-21 dates are: 8/29, 9/26, 10/17, 11/7, 3/20, 4/24, 5/29, 6/12, 8/7, and 8/28.
