From Your Hands to Healing: Artisan Making Workshop Series
Bedford-Stuyvesant - Spring 2023
Wednesdays 4–7 PM | Fridays 4–7 PM | Saturdays 11 AM–1 PM
From Your Hands to Healing: Artisan Making Workshop Series focuses on the fundamentals of art and design, the making process, and its connection to mental, spiritual, and physical healing. Students will be introduced to design principles and construction techniques to produce their own fashion prototypes (wallets, handbags, slippers, and sandals). Along with the technical development of their prototypes, students will utilize mantras, breathing techniques, and simple circulation movements to connect with the making processes. The patience we utilize within the curriculum will instill a “slow and steady” process to fashion design that is essential to sustainable fashion.
