Bring clothes from home – something you’ve been ”meaning to get to,” ones that you wish you could revamp! Batoolio will show you how to tactfully cut up your clothes and teach you how to overhaul your wardrobe without the use of any material besides a pair of scissors and knowledge on knots! And maybe a few safety pins… Use fabric scraps to create your own accessories, or even a textile collage!
*This is a no-sew fashion class.
Suggested clothing items to bring to workshop:
- oversized tshirts
- jeans and pants
Meet the Artist: Batoolio
Batoolio is a self-taught, multi-media, Palestinian-Canadian artist, based in Windsor. Batoolio uses art to communicate feelings that words cannot, resulting in vibrant and layered pieces of work. Batoolio was the most recent 2023 Waawiiyaatanong BIPOC Artist in Residence at Artcite Inc. and a recipient of the 2023 City of Windsor’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Fund grant.
