Thrift is Poetic: Denim and Indigo

  • Oregon College of Art and Craft 8245 Southwest Barnes Road Portland, OR, 97225 United States (map)

Continue the Thrift is Poetic series with this opportunity to convert worn denim trousers into a fashionable bag. We’ll incorporate some specialty techniques such as printing with indigo and other pigments, a simple indigo dye vat, and some couture construction techniques. Styles could include handbag or shoulder straps, tote or pocketbook, side or patch pockets. We’ll choose from a variety of additional fabric accents and closure options. Minimal sewing experience required.
