Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become a cultural icon. There are books, Tumblr pages and even a new documentary that praise Ginsburg’s record, spunk and even her exercise routine.

Nicknamed the “Notorious RBG,” the 85-year-old is known not only for her record on the court, but also for her style.

Ginsburg has been known to accessorize her black robe with a variety of collars – ranging in size, color and material. And on days Ginsburg is not in the majority, she’s been known to wear a “dissent collar.”

Now, Atlantans have the chance to craft their own RBG-inspired collar.

From 1-4 p.m. this Saturday the Museum of Design Atlanta is hosting “Get Your Ruth On: Electrifying Dissent Collars.”

Attendees will see collars by artist Roxana Alger Geffenon, which are currently on view in the museum’s “Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism” exhibit, to get inspiration.

Crafters can then make their own paper collars out of transcripts of Supreme Court decisions and adorn them with materials such as paint and LED lights, according to the museum.

The workshop will be led by instructor Brigid Drozda, who joined MODA in 2015 as a design thinking and innovation education, according to the museum’s website.

Tickets to the event are $45 for nonmembers and $40 for museum members. It includes all materials necessary to make your own collar and admission to the museum.
