School Field Trips

With our large sewing and art classrooms, The Fashion Class makes a wonderful field trip for school-aged students.

high school history field trip

We’ve hosted everything from pre-school children learning about types of clothing to college students learning to sew! With discounted pricing, day trips to our studio are filled with hands-on educational fun.

Perfect for all age groups we can host a variety of projects and lessons for your student’s field trip.

Our rates are affordable and our studio can accommodate up to 50 students depending on your activity.

Let us know your requirements and ideas and we’d be happy to work within a budget and time frame.

“I just want to thank you for having us. Also, thank you for being so patient and providing optimal customer service!! I was extremely impressed and my students were so happy and learned so much!! The ladies were AWESOME!!! I hope to see you again in the future!! Thank you!!!” – PS 278, The Paula Hedbavny School

Students can learn to sew on a machine or by hand and create an actual garment or accessory. We can also focus on STEAM areas like retail math, fabric science (with some fun experiments), entrepreneurship, the history of fashion (with draping or dress-up), and the art of fashion through illustration. Finally we can delve into DIY and crafting with our library of room decor and jewelry making projects.

Past Lessons


Our sewing field trips can allow your students to create a simple project on the sewing machine, learn to hand sew, or create something specific to your class.


In entrepreneurship, students conceptualize their own clothing company, this  includes a name, logo, and problem solving design!


Our fashion history lesson combines fun activities with the ability to touch and feel real clothing from the past. Our fashion closet goes back to the Victorian Era!


Fashion illustration, proportions, the figure, faces, shading, copic marker techniques, or watercolors can all be incorporated into your student's art lesson.


Textile science will have your students examining fabric swatches and fibers! This class is filled with fun experiments to teach children all about where clothing comes from.


Our retail math field trip incorporates hands on design as we walk your class through the process of creating, sourcing, and pricing a garment using fabric swatches!


Our lesson delves into clothing waste and teaches students how they can be more mindful consumers. Class ends by making a DIY project out of recycled fabric (non-sewing).

Custom Lesson

Let us know what your goals are. We can tailor your field trip using any of the supplies in our studio, our fashion closet, historical garments, or even create fab jewelry!
