NEW FROM THE SCHOOL OF MAKING: THE TRENCH AND PEACOAT BUNDLES

“Most of our lives we live closed up in ourselves, with a longing not to be alone, to include others in that life that is invisible and intangible. To make it visible and tangible, we need light and material, any material. And any material can take on the burden of what had been brewing in our consciousness or subconsciousness, in our awareness or in our dreams.” – Anni Albers, 1982 essay “Material as Metaphor” 

Explore design, color, material, and texture while making your winter wardrobe with The School of Making’s Peacoat and Trench Bundles. Art, nature, favorite textiles, and our Studio Book Series all serve as inspiration for The School of Making’s body of appliqué and embellishment. This bundle, developed by our design team, is the foundation for a basic garment and includes all of the materials and notions to create the coat of your choice with added embellishment. Draw inspiration from our designs above, inspired by Anni Albers, the #YearofColor from The School of Making, #womenwhoinspire, and your own explorations.  

Find the contents of each bundle below. You can add on a paper pattern and Mini Color Palette Bundle to either bundle to ensure you will have everything you need to create your coat.
