Creative Clothing meeting on 14 Nov- daytime

The Creative Clothing Interest Group will be meeting this Thursday from 10am until 3pm.

Part of the day will be set aside for analysing body shape, to get better fitting clothes. They will also be looking at an internal challenge to make embellished fingerless mittens.

Last month the group experimented with ‘making fabric’ using fabric scraps, yarn, ribbon sandwiched in a soluble stabiliser. Here are some images of the day:
