Course Description:

Build a look that will be presented at the end-of-week fashion show. Explore key design concepts, basic hand-sewing techniques and how to express yourself through garment making. Practice repurposing, upcycling, embellishing, 2D design and 3D construction. Each camper will create an original, signature look to wear on the runway! No sewing machine necessary.

Campers will be introduced to new skills in the morning session (9-10:30am), receive instructions for a fun project to work on during the day by themselves (or with a friend, if they set up a separate video chat). They return to an afternoon session (2-3:30pm) to share what they made, ask questions, and continue on new projects.

Families and friends are invited on the Friday of camp at 4pm for an online fashion show. A Zoom meeting ID will be emailed to families on the Wednesday of camp.
