Tuesday Teen After School Sewing Workshops – December 2018
December 4 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 18, 2018
Teen After School Sewing Workshops at Fabricate are specifically designed with teens in mind and our projects and challenging curriculum are geared toward students who are interested in learning to sew. Our experienced instructors will guide students through a four week after school series where students will learn practical skills such as how to thread a sewing machine and wind a bobbin, sew hems and buttonholes, read, cut and sew from a commercial pattern, use interfacing, install a zipper and more. Students will build on fundamentals as they gain confidence and hone skills.
Sewing requires concentration, problem-solving skills, hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Studies have found that sewing helps stimulate creative thinking, promoting self-esteem and perseverance. And completing a project from start to finish gives everyone a sense of accomplishment. Our sewing projects will include apparel, accessories, and fashion for the home. We will begin by reviewing the basics and cover safety, fabric and pattern terminology, and sewing machine mechanics, and get lots of practice sewing.
This is an advanced beginner to intermediate level sewing class for ages 9-13. Class meets Tuesdays, 4 – 6, November 6th, 13th and 27th. There will be no class the last week of Thanksgiving.
Instructor: Sarah McGarr & Emily Ciscerella
