Upcycle Your Clothes Through Surface Embellishment

Join Project Runway Season 15 winner Erin Robertson for this special workshop at Hourglass Boston. Learn from Erin herself about her favorite tips and tricks to bring new life to your old garments or vintage finds.

Bring a piece of clothing or two you’d like to hand embellish, beautify, or are bored with, and Erin will supply one-of-a-kind supplies, including decorative pieces from her studio, custom laser cut embellishments, her favorite embroidery threads, and more. You’ll leave with a new way of looking at upcycling and the possibilities of your existing wardrobe: every piece of clothing is a blank canvas!

This workshop will take place at Hourglass when the boutique is closed to the public, so you’ll be able to have Erin’s undivided attention <3
