Passport Academy Charter School’s fashion club sponsor, Naomi Canella, was fortunate to engage in a recent partnership with the educational division of the Warhol Museum, allowing students to participate in several "Maker" workshops. In the first of these sessions, the students learned how to dye fabric using a traditional shibori technique. Shibori is a style of reverse-dyeing that creates shapes on fabric. Next, Heather White and Naeem Martinez-White from the Warhol taught students how to screen print t-shirts, scarves, and their dyed fabric. Students had the option to create their own screens with hand-drawn pictures. Others chose to have beloved photographs made into screens. These images were then printed onto fabric or t-shirts. Finally, the students learned how to sew their screen-printed fabric into tote bags. Ms. Canella also plans to use her sewing skills to help students create sarongs and wrap tops with the dyed fabric for the school’s fashion show, scheduled for April 26, 2019 at 5 PM. The fashion show will also showcase the talents of student rappers, dancers, and singers.
