Session Two is March 13, 14 & 15, from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm, for 12 - 15 year olds.
Our Teaching Artist is Brittani Bumb.
Patterns, prints and paintings do not only hang on the wall, but can also adorn, drape and be worn on the body. Learn new sewing skills, master the sewing machine, create a mood board for inspiration and design a wearable artwork.
While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement.
This is a new program sponsored by AthFest Educates and is a partnership with Community, our local sustainable fashion boutique in downtown Athens.
Location: Lyndon House Arts Center, 706-613-3623 Registration: Registration begins Saturday, February 10 at 9:00 a.m. for ACC residents. Non-residents may register starting Monday, February 12 at noon. Register for this program.

About Brittani Bumb, owner and head designer for Untitled Thoughts. "One thing you should know about me (besides the fact that this wall happens to be my favorite shade of blue) is that I absolutely love everything about nature- if I could simply live outside, I would. In fact, I am currently searching for a home that will provide me with the access to nature I so desperately crave.
Ever since I was young, clothing has been an outlet for expressing my personality, and when I learned how to sew, nothing could slow me down! To me, clothing represents a form of freedom and expression of confidence, all of which I want other women to feel when they wear one of my pieces.
Of course, I strive to put an eco-green stamp of approval on as many practices in my own studio as I possibly can. I truly believe that clothing can not only let you feel good, but it can also be good for the environment. It may take a few extra steps, but those steps are totally worth it! Plus they are extra fun! Enjoy the process as well as the destination, right?"
