Through the ages the blanket has been a source of warmth and comfort. In this relaxed class students will design and learn how to utilize that blanket to create a garment that can be worn when the cold winds blow. Topics will include learning hand stitching, the design of your shirt, the use of wool in regulating the body's core temperature, the simple match coat and how to wear one and the history of blanket shirts, coats and cloaks. Some knowledge of sewing is helpful but not required. Needles, thread and scissors will be provided.
Tuition $105. Member Tuition $85. Materials Fee $14.
NOTE: You may bring your own blankets. They should measure at least 65" x 80". Or a blanket can be provided at a cost of $28.
