    Teenage students ages 13-17 will learn how to design, measure, cut and sew a design of their choosing into a wearable garment. Perfect for beginners and returning students alike - projects are self-designed (after a pre-selected foundation project, this holiday will be a boxy tee) with the help of our professional design instructors. Students will work on our state-of-the-art Singer Quantum Stylist sewing machines.

    How it Works:

    1. Class # 1 Students are given a lesson on how to use a sewing machine + studio safety, returning students get a "refresher" lesson on the machine. We then begin our foundation project. Everyone creates the foundation project, according to their own measurements. 
    2. For the next project, each student sketches their own design and we help them make it! Fabric will be chosen from our stock in studio or ordered (students are also welcome to bring their own). Projects can be patterned, or draped on a dress form with the assistance of our fashion instructors. 
    3. At the end of the course each student should have two finished projects, the foundation project and a design of their choosing!

    We highly encourage students to bring in ideas and sketches of what they would like to make during their course. 

    Students design their own projects so that past students can continue to sew and develop their skills while new students learn the art of sewing and design. Depending on your teen's skill level they may also cover pattern drafting and/or draping while they sew their designs.
