Join Kentuck and Bib & Tucker Sew-Op this summer for a 4-week program focused on fashion and sustainability for students in 6th grade through 12th grade! Recycled Runway: Women’s Work is a 4-week sewing and design program for Tuscaloosa County middle and high school students. During this program, participants will think through types of art that have traditionally been deemed “women’s work,” such as sewing, quilting, embroidery, and jewelry making, and how to transform those types of art into an upcycled fashion design and a modern interpretation of these experiences. Participants will need to source their own items to upcycle and sewing kits, and we recommend that each participant brings their own sewing machines.


In September (date to be determined), we will offer a short runway workshop for participants to practice rocking the runway. On October Art Night, October 3, 2024, participants will showcase their creations on the runway in Kentuck’s Georgine Clarke Building!


There are a maximum of 10 spots available. The minimum for this class is 4 students. If this class does not meet the minimum, participants will be refunded.

Please email Mary Bell, Program Director, at with any questions. 

Kentuck workshops are non-refundable after the registration closes. If you would like to cancel before the deadline passes, please email or call 205-758-1257. If the class does not meet the minimum by the registration deadline and the workshop is cancelled, all participants will be refunded their registration fees.
