Have an interest in fashion, the environment & wearable art?
Catwalk is a program in which students ranging from elementary to high school are given a “trashformation” challenge: Construct wearable art made from a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials. This program, originally started by our partners Educational Gallery Group (EG2), will now be hosted by Resource Depot.
Any interested student (ages 10-18 yrs) - no matter what experience they may or may not have in sewing and non-traditional garment design - is welcome to apply!
Participating students are given access to Resource Depot’s treasure trove of reusable materials and participate in weekly workshops, where they learn the basics of using a sewing machine, construction techniques, and received guidance on how to incorporate the materials they choose. Through the use of nontraditional materials, the students gained environmental consciousness while thinking outside of the “trash”. End design(s) must be made with at least 50% percent reused material.
Registration for this program will open in fall/winter, sign up for our Newsletter to stay informed.
