We have two week-long workshops coming up in June with spots still available. Sign up now for our Patterns and Alterations Studio Week at The Factory June 1 through June 5. This workshop highlights our most recent book, Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns, and will focus on the skills needed to tailor our existing patterns to fit according to your measurements. The cost includes materials, instruction, studio access daily from 8:00am – 6:00pm, yoga sessions, breakfast and weekday lunches, and a few surprises along the way.
Our Classic Studio Week begins the following Monday, June 8 and goes through Friday, June 12. This week-long event gives workshop participants total immersion into Alabama Chanin’s philosophies, methods, materials, and products. Participants will experiment with several different techniques including design basics and the physics of sewing, stencil design and creation, airbrush and stenciling of garments, fit and pattern alterations, discussion, and critique. The cost includes materials, access to airbrush and paint, a selection of garment patterns and stencils available in our Studio Book Series, instruction, daily breakfast and weekday lunches, studio access daily from 8:00am – 6:00pm, and more. Pair this workshop with our weeklong Patterns and Alterations workshop the previous week for our most comprehensive Alabama Chanin experience. Register here.

Saturday, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Stop by any weekday at 2:00pm for a guided tour of our space, including The Factory, the Alabama Chanin production and design studio, and Building 14.
