BISMARCK, N.D. – “Where Can Our Garments Go?”, a free hands-on workshop facilitated by Rebecca Silbernagel, will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum in Bismarck. Silbernagel is the owner-operator of Modify Alterations & Boutique in Bismarck. Registration is required at shsnd.eventbrite.com
Participants should bring one to three clothing articles. Silbernagel will guide the group in brainstorming how the clothing items could be updated, altered, adapted, redesigned, repurposed, or reused. Participants will then begin the creative process on their articles of clothing.
