Bits & Bobbles: Tips & Tricks for Costuming

Saturdays, 4/13 - 4/30 (3 week series!)                10:30AM - 12PM @ Bright Star World Dance - 108 High St. Fl. 3, Portland, ME 04101

Registration:  $70


When you're a belly dancer, ANYTHING could be part of costume! In this workshop, I share my own experience and approach to costuming, including construction tips, pattern making, beading techniques, shopping tips, ways to recycle and more! I will have a selection of show and tell pieces featuring different ways I've costumed. A list of resources I covet; as well as demonstrations of my process. 
 

This is a hands on workshop where students bring costuming materials and we work on a project together. This project could focus on one or more of the following: Belt Construction, Bra Embellishment, Beading... etc. 

Sign up! $70
