Young People’s Sewing Master Class
October 1, 2012 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$150
This school holiday course is specifically for young people (10-16yrs or by agreement) who have shown a genuine interest in sewing and fashion.
- They may already be giving it a go, and are feeling the limitations of their knowledge and experience.
- They may be soaring ahead and just want some expert guidance.
- They may be starting out with only Year 7-8 technology behind them, but are showing a flair and interest in fashion and design.
Limited to four students only, this course will be based on the projects each student wants to take on, at their own pace.
Taught by Maryanne, Made on Marion’s proprietor with 35 years experience in clothing and costume design (I made my first wedding dress at 17 for my English teacher’s daughter).
Ten hours tuition over five mornings (10-12), with some voluntary homework in between. Students will complete the course with a much extended knowledge of techniques, fitting, pattern drafting, finishing and couture tips. We have sewing machines and all the studio equipment needed on hand, you just need your fabric and pattern, if you’re not planning to draft your own (yes, we can go there too!)
While there is a registration form below, I will want to meet with every student beforehand to agree projects and fabrics etc so you are ready to go on day one. I want every student to get the most out of the class and the best way to do that is to work out in advance what your project and learning goals will be.
