Rashguards are great whether you're a surfer or just need sun protection. The rashguard, or swimshirt, made from Chloroban(tm) a 50 SPF swimsuit fabric is chlorine resistant, salt water resistant, and heat resistant. So you an wear them at the beach, the pool, or the hot tub. You can purchase up to 1m of Chloroban either a print or solid as a kit. (You can also use two colours if you want contrast.)
This workshop starts at 10:00 and goes until 4:00. Bring a lunch!
This is an intermediate level course. Students need to know how to use their machines, and can assemble a garment without sewing lessons. You will need both a sewing machine and a serger for this workshop.
Fabric, thread, and elastic are available to purchase on site or you can bring your own stretch fabric to work with. Please contact us in advance so we can let you know how much you will need. We will be adapting a commercial pattern to create your rashguard.
