These creative workshops can be for teens, tweens, or multigenerational groups. The workshops are kept small to provide individual attention—so register promptly.

Couture week in Paris (or Project Runway) meets thrift store chic, with the added spice of self-discovery and self-expression. We’re encouraging participation by adult/teen or adult/tween teams, related or not, in this Mother’s Day weekend program.

What kind of self-portrait do we generate by the clothes we wear? Want to enhance yours--or take it in a new direction? Using thrift store finds as our raw materials, we will each create a look for an imagined self. We’ll explore who we are with garments and accessories--and on paper with short prose poems and character studies. Got a beef? Got a dream? This wexLab designed by Nancy Kangas is a chance to let it out, creatively. It's also a chance to rechannel free-spending "fashionista" tendencies into the those of a style- and budget-conscious recycling "recessionista."
