No pre-registration.

About Barb Grossman:
My journey with art has been a lifelong exploration of discovery. My desire to explore fiber prompted me to begin organizing fiber retreats and an annual creative arts festival featuring classes, vendors, and exhibitions from artists worldwide.
Scrapwerx is a zero-waste initiative that began at the height of the pandemic. I started collecting scraps of fabric from people who were making masks in an effort to divert the textile waste from a landfill.
I have realized that my greatest strength is my desire to share my knowledge with my community. It is my greatest hope that through my community service, I can inspire people of all ages to find a way to express themselves with materials readily available.

About Cathy Olivar:
Cathy has her own business, Cathy Olivar Sustainable Clothing Brand.
She was part of an activist group working toward a fashion future that is more sustainable and transparent and puts peoples’ lives before profit.
She created her company in 2019 with the goal of providing a sustainable alternative to fast fashion.
Cathy was selected along with other incredible designers to recreate some of the most iconic looks for the icon and advocate himself, @theebillyporter, for Billy Porter Presents: A Summer Flower Fashion Show at the Phipps Conservatory here in Pittsburgh recently.
