The TECH Lab is pleased to introduce our Artist in Residence for the fall: Tammie Peterson! Tammie will be holdings workshops centered around textile crafts, with an emphasis on costume and prop creation. Tammie is an ardent cosplay enthusiast, and she has created some incredible costume ranging from Star Wars to the Avengers. She will teach teens how to sew, design, and conceptualize their own costumes, or just teach teens who are interested in learning more textile art skills. In October she will be holding two sessions, one on the 4th to introduce the topic of cosplay and have teens start to plan what they want to work on, and then the 25th will be a work day where teens can start creating their own costumes.
