Catwalk is a program in which students ranging from elementary to high school are given a “trashformation” challenge: construct wearable art made from a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials. Participating students are given access to Resource Depot’s treasure trove of reusable materials and participate in weekly workshops, where they learn the basics of using a sewing machine, construction techniques, and receive guidance on how to incorporate the materials they choose. Through the use of nontraditional materials, the students gain environmental consciousness while thinking outside of the “trash”.
for 2023 we are partnering with the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, our theme will be inspired by artwork, the Norton will be having us work with artwork from their collection.
We want any student that is interested to participate, no matter what experience they may or may not have in sewing and non-traditional garment design. Applications for 2023 will open in the November of 2022.
