The 2- to 2.5-hour beginner's sewing-basics class illuminates essential terms and techniques, including basic stitches, sewing-machine etiquette, and straight versus curved lines. Students take home a project of their own creation at the end of the class. During the two-hour screen-printing class, students learn to print on shirts, paper, and fabrics using simple and eco-friendly ink-transfer methods.
Project Make is a six-week intensive course on all aspects of sewing and design. Held from 2 p.m.–6 p.m. on Sundays, classes begin with instruction in new skills and techniques that build upon the tasks of the previous weeks. Students are then given a new challenge—Road Rules-style—to complete before the next class. Students can use the remainder of the class time to get a jump-start on the project in the presence of a sewing mentor. Sewing basics is a prerequisite.
Materials and supplies for all classes are included.
Make and Made
In a culture more and more driven by technology and immediacy, Make and Made encourages students to slow down to learn the art of making things with your hands. Students outfit their paws with sewing needles, thread, and measuring tape as they use traditional skills to make modern projects, such as a clutch, drawstring pants, or a bow tie. Make and Made also cultivates up-and-coming fashionistas with fashion camp for kids aged 7 and older, where tykes learn to splice swatches and custom-craft their very own letterman jacket.
