Bring in just a few of your t-shirts and we will transform the discarded garments into a yarn, creating a versatile material that reimagines the possibilities of the fabric. We will then learn the basics of crocheting to create a large knitted bag of whatever dimensions you desire. Finally, we will learn how to create a lining with optional pockets and a fastener to customize the bag to your needs.  Design Center, Milstein Room 104 Barnard College barnard-admin@digitalpulp.com America/New_York public
