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.
