Develop your sewing skills while choosing, designing, and focusing on projects that you are passionate about and inspire you. From athletic wear to formal attire, students are given the opportunity to master their individual sewing skills and pursue personal interests throughout the course. Success looks different for each student; individual student needs will be supported regardless of sewing level and experience. Come learn about the fashion industry locally and abroad while mastering a lifelong skill.
Students will be introduced to and begin the mastery of basic sewing skills and techniques. They will construct a variety of projects from bags, pjs and hoodies. Students with experience will be able to choose some of their own projects. Students will also explore textile arts through our indigenous learning project, and learn to illustrate their own designs through fashion illustration.
Having mastered basic sewing skills, students will continue to develop their knowledge with intermediate projects of their choosing. Students will also begin to explore career pathways in the fashion industry. Instruction will be geared towards the individual interests and experience of the participants. Projects may include: working with specialty fabrics, digitally designing custom patterns, recreating your favorite designer’s styles, and incorporating your individuality into your projects.
Students will research, design, and execute specialty fashion projects of their choosing with teacher guidance and support. Student designs and creations may include corsets, formal attire, coats and more. Students are encouraged and supported with the design and execution of their individual projects and interests. Students who are interested in the fashion industry as a career will be supported as they explore their career options in curating and creating fashion.
