Textile Scrapwork
Work with scraps and learn to turn leftovers into useful materials.

Join Marnie Saskin in the textile studio and learn ways to get the most use out of your scraps. We’ll cover how to integrate scraps into your practice, organize textile scraps and build your textiles knowledge. You'll learn methods of using textile scraps as a foundational material.

Together we’ll make badges or patches, stuff pillows, remove logos from t-shirts and use cornstarch glue to engineer a bowl or a box out of textile scraps. Conversations and ideas/practices around textile re-use, textile waste, and polyester sequestering will be encouraged throughout. No sewing experience necessary.
