Trash Fashion: discovering new ways to make recycled clothing and accessories


Help change the world with sustainable fashion in this fun, hands-on workshop.  Learn how to create clothing and accessories with what would normally be considered trash.  Also, learn about the amazing ways trash is used in “Couture Trashion” throughout the world.  Go home with several items and tons of ideas on how to stand out in a crowd with one-of-a-kind items that you made!  The cost is $10 for FNFSR (friends of the north fork of the shenandoah river) members and $12 for non-members.  Two family members can attend for one price if they are working on the same project.  Those under 13 must be accompained by a parent or guardian.  Please Note: deadline to register is March 23.  This workshop is for all ages


Time: 1:00-4:00 pm

Sessions: March 31

Location: W.W. Robinson Elementary School (shenandoah county, northern virginia)

Instructors: J. Frenzel and E. Rainard (these are the people who wrote this blog)

Fees: $10/$12

During this workshop we are curretly planning on giving instructions on how to make t-shirt scarves, paper bead creations, and cute recycled hair clips.  We will be providing all of the materials for you to make all of these while attending the class.  There will also be a presentation on trash fashion so that you go home with more ideas on what you can make.  Younger children will also be given a how-to idea packet when they leave, so that they will continue to make these things when they get home.  We hope that if you are in the area, you will attend.
