Join us for an evening design workshop where you will help artist Tereneh Mosley create a look for her Spring 2018 New York Fashion Week collection and an upcoming Creative Reuse exhibition. You will also have the chance to create something for yourself: headpieces, all manners of jewelry, patches for clothes, additions to t-shirts, new sleeves, tails for dresses, anklets, or whatever you can dream up!
Idia’Dega is a global eco-design collaboration – co-designing and creating with OMWA: Olorgesailie Maasai Women Artisans of Kenya and the Beading Wolves (Oneida, Haudenosaunee). We want you to join our creative community and help us create our final piece for the Spring 2018 collection. Even if this is your first time making any garments, we want your insight and input. No prior knowledge, sewing, or textile arts training or experience needed. We want lots of lots of chefs making this soup.
In this intimate workshop, you will enjoy snacks, beer, and wine, hands-on making, one-on-one time with Tereneh Mosley, and the chance to be part of a collaborative design.

About Creative Reuse:
Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse inspires creativity, conservation, and community engagement through reuse. We operate a non-profit retail shop located at the intersection of Wilkinsburg, Homewood, and Point Breeze, where people can donate materials that aren't typically accepted at other thrift stores, as well as shop for these unique items all in the same location. We also facilitate hands-on creative programming that educates the public about the benefits of reuse for the environment, community, and self. We see reuse as being a vehicle for boosting self-confidence, the learning of new skills, and the creation of opportunity for all.
