  • Add to Calendar 2021-09-21 17:00:00 2021-09-21 19:00:00 Upcycled Crochet Bag Workshop Image In this workshop, we will be upcycling your old shirts into a stylish and functional accessory - a crochet-knit bag for all your daily needs. 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
