About the class

Curious about creating a Trashion Fashion runway outfit, an upcycled Trashion Barbie and don’t know where to start? 

We offer free open design studios where you can find your Trashion community, work and collaborate and – NEW – this year; we have added demonstrations with hand on advice from past Trashion designers. January 29th will feature Trashion Fashion Sonoma founder and master designer, Margaret Hatcher who will share her design concepts, sources of inspiration, construction techniques and advice for creating a successful Trashion design. February 12th features long time participant and winning designer, Robert Stickley sharing his one of a kind creations come to life from rubbish to the runway! On February 26th, we have Erica Warren, City of Sonoma’s Environmental Compliance Analyst highlighting local trash collection resources and turning trash to fashion. 

In addition, come and have access to space, tools, supplies and recycled materials or BYOT (Bring your own Trash!)

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.

About the instructor

Erica Warren

Environmental Compliance Analyst

Erica Warren, Environmental Compliance Analyst, will be presenting outfit creation ideas from the world of single-use plastics.
Examples will focus on cast off plastics, but also other types of trash and methods to assemble. You can even capture trash in resin or other single use plastic bags to capture its gross essence – ! Bring your playful mind and we will experiment with different materials and processes while we are there.
