About This Class
This class is a combination of creativity and recycling.
I am passionate about recycling. It can take many forms. For many of us our experience with recycling is putting our plastic, glass and paper in a recycle bin and taking it out to the curb. In this class we will go beyond that passive recycling.
You will use your creativity to recycle a pair of your old jeans. Instead of taking them to the thrift store, you will give your jeans a new life. You are going turn an old pair of jeans into a little denim purse/tote bag for yourself. In fact, one pair of jeans can yield up to 4 little purses. One for you, and 3 for gift giving. Who doesn't like a handmade gift?
This class is suitable for the beginner sewer as well as more advanced. It's intended to spark your creativity by using materials you already have on hand.
I am a mixed media artist with a passion for recycling and using the left over textiles and papers that were destined for the landfill. My work has been published in over a dozen publications by Stampington. I have taught classes at my local Parks and Rec in Chandler, Arizona, at Arizona Craft Rave and many local craft events.
