Community Fashion Workshops

Learn beading and embellishment with Marwan Pleasant. Learn on scrap fabrics or bring an item to embellish (i.e. hats, patches, jackets).

Learn how to make a hoodie from scratch with Marwan. Participants will need to bring three yards of fabric (sourced from anywhere).

Marwan Pleasant was born and reared in New Orleans. Under the tutelage of his grandfather, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, he’s been a part of the Black masking Indian tradition since being able to walk. His drive at a young age appointed him as an instructor in the Fashion & Textiles department teaching traditional beading techniques and appliqué designs. His fashion brand is called Marlence.
