Module 7: Redesign, Restore, or Recycle (Optional)

In a google search for re-designed clothing, the first link at the top of the page led me to the following course outline offered by the Saskatchewan Education department. I guess its a college in Canada from what I could tell. I found it interesting to know that this is finally catching on as popular. (Who knows maybe they teach this in design school?) And they also address the environmental standpoint. Read the full text here.
