ARe you traveling with something that needs to be altered to fit well or work better? Do you want to reinvent a piece of clothing ? does it need a pocket? a zipper? Did your favorite pants get a hole in it? want to customize a hat, jacket, shirt, pants,..? Here's your chance to breathe new life into something so it becomes one of your favorite things. I'm going to help you redesign or fix something(s) you bring to the workshop. With over 20 years experience designing costuming to perform in, to play in at events like Burning Man and also custom design for clients, I want to share and help you be able to do it yourself. no experience neccessary learn to hand sew with thread, leather, rubber or wire or give a go at using a sewing machine maybe you wish to learn how and when to use a hot glue gun, super glue or 24 hour setting glue Bring something(s) you wish to modify & other things you could make a creative pallette to work from : different fabrics, trim, scarves, leather, broken jewelry, etc.. I also have materials you can use, so no worries if you are a light traveler. extra fee for materials you get from me. Be a Design Apprentice for a day.
I am an artist, designer and performance artist living in Amsterdam since 2012 and have been designing my own costuming for decades in Hollywood, CA and festival worlds, discovering all kinds of tips and tricks to make things comfortable & strong. I believe in functional art, especially with clothing. I have led large design workshops at Lightning in a Bottle Festival as part of the Interactive Art Gallery for many years to hundreds of people & love opening creative doors for others to explore and express. I look forward to your fantastic creations http://www.stardustmagick.com/designer.html

My art studio is in the Zamenhof Terrein which is a flourishing neighborhood of artists, musicians, designers, etc... From my fantasy decor top floor studio, there is a lovely view of Amsterdam. In this area, you will see a special part of the city most tourists aren't aware of. Very close to a beautiful park called the Vliegenbos (which translates to Flying Forest or Wings Forest) for a wander and the IJ river with beautiful views of the city.
