What is a Ruana? It is a versatile sleeveless over the shoulder wrap. Using basic shapes as a design canvas, the final outcome is totally up to you! Add sleeves and you have a jacket. Work with one fabric or join a number of fabrics together to spice up your design. How about flatlocked inserts, semi-attached scarf or a contrasting front band? The possibilities are endless and you'll love the results! Jill will have various styles in class for inspiration and will help you with your own design. It may sound intimidating but it is really quite fun.We'll spend the first half of class working on fit and design and the second half on construction and showing off our creations. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
