"I liked that I was able to make many things for myself."

Take your fashion designs from sketch to dress—or shirt, or pants, or whatever you want to wear.

In this workshop you not only learn the fundamentals of sewing and construction, but you also begin to explore your own artistic sensibilities through discussions of themes and trends in fashion and applications such as costume design and haute couture. You’ll create mood boards, sketch your own fashion collection, adapt a pattern to your own design, and sew by hand and on a sewing machine.

Each student constructs garments which are presented in a group runway show and gallery exhibit at the end of the session. Experience with a sewing machine is recommended but not required.
