Level: Beginner Friendly

Hosted by The Fashion School CIC*.

FashionLab is for the students who love to be creative and have an interest in fashion! This term will teach students about the importance of sustainability within the fashion industry and how they can still enjoy fashion in a responsible way. The students will continue to enhance their design, making and textile skills, leaving the course with a fabulous handmade garment to be proud of and that will demonstrate everything they have learnt over the term. A wonderful selection of donated deadstock designer fabrics will be available for the students to pick from to use, from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Brogger and Preen to name a few. 

Example Brief:

It's time to explore your identity through your clothing.

You'll be making something for yourself and exploring your creativity. What inspires you? Will you add cultural influences? How will your other hobbies or your music taste inspire your designs? Will your influences inspire the shape of your garment or the type of fabric and textiles you use? You'll be exploring these ideas whilst learning to use a sewing machine, adapt patterns and sew your garment.

FashionLab Career is for the young creative who sees fashion as more than a hobby and wants to be in an environment with like-minded individuals who are looking to pursue the creative arts in further education.

The class vibe is positive and friendly.

 

You will also visit the V&A to Naomi fashion exhibition in week 2 or 3 with Caroline.

Example Brief:

 

Imagine that...

You are attending your fantasy Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum in New York (think V&A), but to attend you must design and make your outfit.

What will your theme be? A historical event, a place, your favourite film?

Who will be your muse?

The Fashion School’s Contemporary Art Club for Children

 

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once (they) grow up”.                                                                               Pablo Picasso

 

 

Here at The Fashion School we believe that anyone can learn to express themselves and find their creative outlet, using a wide range of materials, tools and techniques from a very young age, whether fabric, needle and thread or canvas, paint and glue. 

 

Traditional techniques such as drawing are skills that can be learned and schools are excellent at teaching this.

We plan to take your child on a different creative journey, introducing the work of contemporary and modern artists and movements and opening the exciting world of art galleries and exhibitions as well as teaching new skills and then allowing the students to make their own creative decisions to produce their own individual artworks.

Don't forget our online workshops

Our classes are open to beginners and experienced fashionistas.

What we provide: The use of new and fully serviced Janome 725s sewing machines, scissors, tools and threads etc. Students can use free donated fabrics as part of our Circularity Bank or bring in their own.

What to expect:

We believe in giving substance and sustainability awareness to each sewing project by encouraging open and enquiring creative minds in a structured environment. Each week we will give the children another aspect of fashion experience through an activity to give a solid base to their new found skill set. Please check the individual class details to see what they will be up to each week.

We will be working on sewing skills to improve the children’s technical ability, which will then be incorporated into personal projects.

Your child will have their own fashion work station with all equipment, machinery, chair, table etc sanitised before each class.

Activities include:

  • Learning to sew on a machine

  • Drawing fashion ideas

  • Draping fabrics on a mannequin stand to create designs

  • Pinning and cutting fabrics

  • Sustainability awareness

  • New sewing techniques

  • Making own garment

 

At the end of term they will come home with:

  • Design sheets, sustainable fabric awareness and technical sewing samples

  • A simple completed garment designed and made by them

  • Digital certificate of completion (80%+ attendance)

 

We will help them develop skills in:

  • Sustainable design awareness
