Wardrobe Design Studio Presents Renaissance Smocking Workshop

Wardrobe Design Studio is offering an intimate workshop for people  to learn the historical technique of smocking on Saturday, February 21 from 10 to 4. The workshop will be held at Wardrobe Design Studio in Portland, Oregon. In addition to hands on instruction, the class materials will include a pre-pleated high or low necked chemise of fine quality handkerchief linen ready for sizing and smocking, instruction booklet, a sample piece to work and sample stitches to keep.

Students should bring sharp sewing scissors, needles, and floss of your choosing, as well as a bag lunch. During the class we will explore different pleating techniques, the various stitches, their use in combinations, and students should be able to make progress on their own chemises as well. Some silk flosses will be available for experimentation. This 6 hour hands on workshop with pre-pleated chemise are yours for $150.

Additional chemise kits are available for $85 at any time.
