12 Days of Craftmas- Hand Painted Jeans
December 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$65
Jeans are one of those durable wardrobe items that boast long life spans and also have a way of sticking around long past their prime. It’s difficult to part ways with a particularly loved and worn-in pair of jeans, but after enough time, even the best denim can lose its appeal. If you find yourself in this predicament of holding onto a pair of jeans that require a refresh, there is a simple step that can give your jeans new life—if you’re up for getting a little crafty. You can rework your tired denim with a fresh coat of paint. Whether you’re looking to add some artistry with planned designs or simply provide a literal splash of color via a splatter effect, painting jeans can immediately transform their look while making them uniquely yours.

This class is for anyone 16 years or older wanting to learn to design and paint their own hand painted jeans
