Halloween Costume Sewing Workshop

    • sewing machine

As part of our Halloween Costume Course, we will be going over the basics of sewing your costume! To do this, our instructors will be showing you how to hack a softgood item to guide you in sewing YOUR costume!   

Maybe you want to be a wizard- we'll show you how to hack a Snuggie into a wizard's robe.  Or maybe you want to be a frog- we'll show you how to hack a pair of gloves to help you create big old frog hands.  Whatever your costume is, there is an existing garment that can guide you in sewing it!

Students must bring in a garment/ soft good that we will show you how to hack according to the design of their costume.  Any special fabric a student may want to use on their final costume should be brought as well.  Email with any questions!
