Introductory 1C, Intermediate 2C & Advanced 3C
5 Credits per course
Beginners of all ages are welcome in this project-based construction course. Begin by learning the tools of the trade as you make a small gift item and your own bag. Choose to add some “bling” and then your first unique, ‘made by you,’ creation is ready for use! Then…let’s go shopping! Field trips to local retailers introduce students to the consumer side of the fashion industry and provide them with help making their first project purchases.
Next…get tangled in the wonderful world of yarns and other fibre arts media. And then enter the design world by designing your first original upcycled creation. Finally…we will work as a class to create a charity gift to share our talents with others.
Now that you know the basics, you are ready to continue developing your construction expertise by working with various specialty fabrics and couture techniques. Discover the designer within: transform your fashion originals using flat pattern and draping techniques, and sew for others. Participate in our Hems ‘R’ Us business venture! Create home décor or personal accessory items combining your fashion talents with those learned in interior design studies. Dare to make your own Grad wear. Participate in exciting and fast-paced Project Runaway-type challenges to prove your creativity and problem solving skills.
