Fashion accessories have been transformed thanks to innovative designers like Twinkie Chan. In a one day class with Emilee Kingsley, studies will learn to turn yarn into wearable works of art. “Kawaii Scarves” will have students making their chose of cupcake, toast, fruit or the instructor’s favorite, a sushi scarf. Kawaii means cute, lovable, adorable in Japanese, and is attached to a number of new trends including making clothing, accessories and toys. A copy of the Twinkie Chan’s book “20 Yummy Treats to Wear” is included in the materials fee.
Offered by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council, the class is held at the Council’s Centre for the Arts in Centreville, MD. Registered students will receive a materials list.
