Used Clothing Alchemy Retreat

  • Berkshire County United States (map)

Join us for a Used Clothing Alchemy Retreat — a whole weekend of community and creativity with Crispina ffrench! The specific location of this retreat will be determined in early 2019.

LIIMITED TO 12 ATTENDEES! Saturday & Sunday from 10am–5pm

Recreate your wardrobe by cutting, sewing, and fitting out-of-style, stained, ill-fitted or otherwise un-wearable clothing into a new favorite. Participants should bring 3–6 freshly laundered garments to restyle and/or swap. Things will kick off with demonstrations of restyling techniques. Then, individual consultations will help each student devise a game-plan to create a custom fitted, wonderfully styled new garment of their own design.

You may also choose to make gifts or home decor with your material — we’ll have lots of ideas and samples on hand to inspire you!

We plan to offer retreats four times each year, and we’re partnering with Hotel on North in Pittsfield, MA and local restaurants for convenient, discounted lodging and meals. We’ll send along detailed information to registered folks. Check out our events calendar for other Used Clothing Alchemy Retreat dates!
