Art of Clothing

Orchard House 275 Hungry Hollow Road, Chestnut Ridge, NY

In ten Saturday workshops from September to May, we design and sew four garments using four natural fibers (cotton, linen, wool, and silk) to create a complete outfit. Drafting simple patterns and sewing by hand gives us the opportunity to center ourselves and practice a meditative way of working. Over the course of the year we experience different sewing techniques, plant dyeing, and embroidery as we create our own unique fabric and garments.
