Say Hello to River Takada-Capel,
our new sewing instructor!


 


River Takada-Capel was born in Tokyo, Japan and raised in Carrboro, NC.  She went to Haywood Community College for Professional Crafts in Textile Fibers located in Western North Carolina.  Here she learned the many processes of textile design like weaving, screen printing, and hand dyeing with natural dyes,  and she continued to excel in her life long passion for sewing.  River is designer and creator of Riverbasin Outfitters, a clothing and jewelry line made completely of up-cycled materials.  River has recently joined forces with other re-make artisans to create the Gypsy Witch Collective; which practices an Eco.Eco business model: ecological and economical.  River enjoys spreading techniques on how to upcycle found materials to kids and adults alike.
