Instructor: Marie Gouwens is the owner and designer of Trixy Xchange. She specializes in costumes and upyclced clothing. She believes in taking care of the world that we inhabit, and therefore creates a generous amount of designs that are upcycled from clothing and materials that are donated to her studio! It's a creative challenge that she has embraced, which also keeps her designs fresh, beautiful and eco-friendly.
Directions to Studio: Trixy Xchange is located in the Flat Iron Arts Building in Wicker Park. When you get to the 2nd floor, take a left at the top of the stairs, take another immediate left, go around the bend, and look for our Clothing Recycling Bin in front of our studio!
