We offer Summer Camps.
Our Camps are designed for young Fashion Designers to learn the skills of Sewing, Fashion Sketching and Textiles manipulation. The young Fashion Designers will create their own designs with the guidance or our highly trained staff. They will also create fun and exciting projects that they will keep and be able to wear for the world to see!
These camps offer an overview of the basic knowledge required to become a Fashion Designer. Youths enjoy creating, making basic patterns and constructing through simple projects.
They learn Fashion Sketching by designing fashion silhouettes, creating dress design or garments they would like to wear; they experiment with different mediums and see their creativity flourish.
In Sewing, they do multiple simple projects where they apply techniques learned in Sewing by hand and by machine, Pattern Making mixed with techniques learned in textiles. They come up with amazing ideas and projects.
In Textiles, they experiment with different fabrics: they play with dye and paint on fabrics. They also learn beading with a good variety of supplies and techniques.
All camps include projects that will get youth to be creative by designing and sewing their own clothing. With the help of our highly trained staff the youth will make pin cushions, Tote Bags, Dresses, Pants. They will also be trained in fashion sketching where the youth will draw their desired designs in the style of Fashion Figures.
The projects are tailored so that each youth goes home with one of a kind pieces made from their talented hands. Cost for the camp includes all supplies and run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Drop off at 8:30am and pickup at 5:00pm.
