TrasHion Show with Kids: Design Techniques and Show Planning

Presenter

How do you teach kids to sew if the fabric is trash? Wait, how do you get kids to even wear trash? These questions and more are discussed when the Coordinator for Sunol Glen School Trashion Collective, Cammie Clark, gives a presentation on how to successfully plan, create, educate and execute a Trashion Show for kids, focusing on the most difficult challenge: creating wearable, beautiful fashions constructed entirely out of trash. Come see beautiful creations made from trashy items like Starbucks Coffee bags, Charmin packaging, Kellogg's Cereal lids, Target bags, old comic books and so much more!
