Carnegie Hall’s Classes & Workshops are well underway, but there is still plenty of time to sign up for a number of classes. Coming up, Thomas Ruggerio will teach how to make hand-crafted clothing in “Let’s Make a Wrap Skirt.” This unique learning opportunity is taught in small group settings at Carnegie Hall.
“Let’s Make a Wrap Skirt” is a three-week course that meets Saturdays, Mar. 5, 12, and 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Under guided instruction, students will take body measurements and sew a custom wrap skirt. In addition to leaving with a hand-crafted skirt, students will also receive a skirt-pattern block to continue making custom clothes. Students will need to purchase fabric and notions of their choice, after completing their custom pattern. All other materials will be provided and no machine-stitching experience necessary. Registration is $55 for members and $65 for nonmembers and students must be at least 14 years old. Class size is limited so enroll early.
Thomas Ruggiero is an artist and fashion designer from Lewisburg with a Bachelor of Science with a focus in Fashion Design and Merchandising from West Virginia University. He is a resident artist of Lee Street Studios, and his art focuses on a joining of modernity in design and traditional approaches in craft.
