CREATE mixed media retreat class: "Aprons As Personal Armor"

This student from another class drops in to try on my sample apron

The Aprons As Personal Armor class at CREATE Chicago was small, but mighty!  Our students worked hard throughout the day to create wearable constructions from cloth and trim.  The classroom was an explosion of color and texture!  We brought many types of trim and ephemera for students to choose from to add to what they brought from home.  I brought a bag of bits and pieces of cloth from previous projects that had Mistyfuse added.  Using Mistyfuse and stitch to assist with their creations, each student left with a great start on her apron.  We can't wait to see the end-results!
 Our students got a great start on their designs and embellishments

There was a great deal of laughter and banter throughout the day.  What fun!
