Young Designers 2019/20

Young Designers is an advanced sewing class for mature students. Students must have a passion for sewing, be able to work independently, and show responsibility for their work and actions. We will accept high school students with any amount of sewing experience (little or none included), and any younger students that present a portfolio of their work, or got their gold ribbon in the "Super Sewing Skills" challenges offered in our Kids & Teens classes.

In this class students will get to explore the design process, including fabric selection, tailoring techniques, and pattern drafting. They will create garments from their own designs.

Students will also have the opportunity to attend the NBCCD fashion show in April as a class, and participate in the SJ Sewist Academy fashion show at the end of the year. 

Class Times: Sat 11:30am-1:00pm

Classes run from Sept 21, 2018 - May 30, 2019 with breaks for holidays, please see our class calendar for closures.
