2023 Summer Program

Please Note: This is a four day class- Tue, Wed, Thurs, Fri.
We are closed, Mon, June 19th.

Join professional freelance theatrical costumer C. Delari Johnson to learn how to sew by hand and on a machine. You will grasp everything from how to thread a needle, knot a thread, to creating a pattern for the pillow and bag you will make this week. Learn how to create applique designs for your projects and two different sewing stitches.

Revive and repurpose vintage clothing into sock puppets, tapestries, bags, and more! Try your hand at embroidery and cross stitch. Personalize all your creations so you can use and enjoy your works of art. Regenerate your own clothes by applying your new skills to old materials.

This program is supported by the Connecticut Office of the Arts
