Kids Camp Summer 2020
Camp is for ages 12 - 17
Dates and times coming January 2020
Textile Design and Construction
In this class, we will explore various ways to embellish textiles. Additionally, students will learn basic garment construction utilizing their unique hand embellished cloth.
During week one, students will explore block printing, eco-printing, dyeing with natural dyes and fabric painting.
In week two, students will use their original cloth to sew garments. Students will be able to choose between stitching a skirt, elastic waist pants, a scarf, or various accessories (hats or bags) so they can wear the one of a kind fabric they created.
The cost includes all of the supplies students will need.
Designer Process and Fashion Illustration
In this class we will explore the fashion design process from creating mood boards to choosing color palettes and fabrics to illustrating the students’ original designs.
In week one, students will learn about and create their own mood boards for a fashion line.
In week two, students will learn basic fashion illustration and watercolor techniques to illustrate and present their fashion line.
The cost includes all supplies.
ReVamp/ReWork: An Upcycling Workshop
In this class students will up-cycle old garments into new, refreshed garments. Additionally, we will review basic sewing techniques for knits and woven fabrics.
During week one, students will focus on knit garments, such as transforming T-shirts and felted sweaters into fresh creations. In week two, students bring in personal garments where we can plan and implement a more complicated re-work of garments (e.g, an oversized button-up shirt remade into a dress).
