Fashion for Theatre: An Introduction to Sewing (Ages 7-10, Ages 8-16)
Perfect for designers who want to learn to sew, but have little to no sewing experience. Students will be introduced to machine sewing (including use and safety), hand sewing, how to read and use a pattern, as well as a bit of the history and the importance of sewing as a theatre art. Students will also be exposed to fashion illustration as it relates to costume design and how to use different mediums as they create their own design. Students will develop their skills and bring home a machine-sewn project and a small hand-sewn project based on sketches (black and white, color and framed to go home) inspired by a historical image from the theatre.
