Chrysalis Creative
75 Eastern Ave., Suite 203
St. Johnsbury, VT

Instructor: Margaret Wiseheart Anderson

Students will create funky clothing and accessories by repurposing denim jeans, men’s shirts, and other clothing components, developing their own styles that are hip, fun and on trend. Developing an idea from inspiration, pattern making through draping and flat patterns, sewing, and adding embellishments will be the focus this week, culminating in one-of-a-kind wearable art.

Class fee: $130 (10% discount for siblings). We never want a family to make a difficult decision regarding their child’s enrichment, which is why we make generous tuition assistance available. Parents and caregivers wishing to discuss financial assistance should contact Anne at 802-748-2600 ext. 109 for details. Space is limited to 8 students, and registration closes on August 8.

Please complete an enrollment form HERE after paying for the workshop. Students should bring a lunch and some pieces of clothing that they would like to alter. We will provide sewing machines and notions, but students are welcome to bring additional notions (thread, zippers, lace and other embellishments) if they like.

Please refer to our website for any current COVID-19 related restrictions.
