ONSITE: Sewing from a Pattern

We’ve all dreamed of making our own clothes. For the non-professional, we’ve got patterns! Sam Christian will provide some sewing know-how for students to spin unique garments using a combination of pre made patterns. We’ll learn to read and comprehend patterns, choose the right fabrics and make a garment we’ll be proud to show off!

About the Instructor

Sam Christian

Focusing in multiple mediums, Sam’s primary forms are Linocut printmaking, Fiber Arts (sewing and quilting) and Comic Art. Sam is a native of Richmond’s East End who has worked to craft a practice around the beauty and inequities found in the East End and communities like it. Through eco-conscious printmaking that highlights the deep history of the East End community and artistic partnerships
in schools and community spaces, Sam has been instrumental in cultivating light and love in the spaces they call home. Being no stranger to the obstacles facing students of the East End, both academic and social, Sam looks for any opportunity to shift the narrative and make space for young artists.
