Public artist and environmental advocate Nancy Judd will lead a series workshops teaching how to utilize used, discarded or recycled items in the home to design a fashion project of each students’ choice – a jacket, slacks, a skirt, a dress, a gown, a cape, a haute couture suit or gown. What about all those beautiful silver juice box liners or plastic/cardboard packaging?
The class will culminate in a virtual fashion show highlighting each student’s completed fashion project and how they came to understand the need to recycle, upcycle and utilize waste in a way that will protect their environment and the earth they live on.
Ms. Judd is renowned for her couture fashion sculptures made from trash. She uses her engaging sculptures to stimulate conversation, action and education about sustainable living. Her works are exhibited in museums and the Smithsonian has one of her pieces in their permanent collection.
Nancy has worked with groups around the country creating upcycled fashions for over 15 years.
