For those of us who wear clothes, it's not only a good idea to think about what we wear, but how it's made, and there's no better way to learn how it's made, than to make it yourself.
In this 8 week project, 10 high school students will work with two local fashion designers to design and make their own jackets and hats, then show it off on the runway at the Danville Fashion Show.
Students will learn to sew using standard sewing machines, industrial machines, and some hand stitching. They will learn to read and modify sewing patterns, as well as how to shape and block a hat.
Students will keep the garments they make.
Class begins August 21st and runs through October 18th.
Sundays: 4:30 - 7pm
Tuesdays: 6 - 8:30pm
Saturday, November 12th: Fashion show at Danville Fashion Week.
