A workshop dedicated to the art of transforming junk is slated from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday, July 6 at Better Farm in Redwood.
In "Creative Upcyling and the Art of Transforming Junk", each student will bring an old, tired furniture or clothing piece to transform into something else that is functional. From sketches to the final product, instructor Stephanie DeJoseph of La Mia Designs will help students visualize, create, transform, and finalize an upcycled piece. Encouraged materials (anyone without the following is not excluded from attending): one piece to upcycle, sewing machine, fabric scraps, old clothing, small furniture pieces. Ages 15 and up. This workshop is being put on in partnership with betterArts.
