Together, Madam Chino was able to help nearly 50 students create and inspire further creations, diverting not only more old T-shirts from the trash, but also probably more people from shopping at big business chain stores where "indie" fashion isn't really "indie" anymore, ah hem.
Many students chose to employ this specific technique called "ladder weaving" which has been brought back to popular culture from the 80s by faux-indie stores such as Urban Outfitters. But you can do-it-yourself!
YOU can learn this technique by searching for "ladder weaving" on youtube!
We had so much fun teaching and working with the students and promoting Madam Chino's NO-SWEAT SEWING at the UWM Craft Centre!
