This is a one-off trial class in the Fashion Designers course running in the Autumn Term 2019. This class is for learners between the ages of 8 and 14.
Times and Duration
This is a two hour long class. The Fashion Designers course runs on Saturdays from 10:00am till 12:00pm during term time, for a duration of 10 to 13 weeks, depending on the length of the school term. There is a break at half term. The schedule can be found on our Term Timetable (please see Term Time & Holidays link above).
Try one class
This trial class is an opportunity for each learner to try one class in the course, to see if they would like to join us for the rest of the term. You are welcome to book the trial class at any point in the term, except in the final week of the course, when we have our show and share event. There is only one trial class allocated per learner per term in this course.
What we do
Children and young people interested in sewing, fashion, and textiles will love this course.
They will learn how to use an electric sewing machine as well as hand stitching skills. They will also have access to our heat press, laser cutter, screen printing and etching press.
We start with a theme, use a work book to develop ideas and record progress of skills research and exploration. By the end of term each child finishes with a rewarding piece. Past projects have included skirts, bags, cushions and sewing kits. Boys welcome too!
For those interested, we are also trained as an Arts Award Centre which some children choose to pursue as a framework for achieving a certificate by the end of the year from Discover level to Bronze, Silver and Gold (Trinity College Arts Awards).
