Winter and February Break Classes

Welcome to 2014!  I kick off this year with Medieval Fashion - an adult/teen class on the fashion of the Medieval Era in which my students will learn patterning and hand-sewing techniques, culminating in the creation of their own shirt or vest!

In February I will be offering a few Vacation Week workshops through the Worcester Art Museum as well!  Check out my Classes and Workshops page for all the info!

Fall class review: Fashion Design - Medieval Flair

This past week we wrapped up my Fashion Design - Medieval Flair Class at the Worcester Art Museum.  I had a great, creative class and some wonderful designs and creations came out of the class!
A "Beautful Oops" moment.  One student's bleaching try at home did not go so well - but she did a great job with marker and embroidery making it into a one-of a kind shirt. Diana

Fingerless gloves made in class with hand embroidery and the designs the gloves inspired. Sharon

Some designs from Diana for the final project

Tools, hand-carved stamp, and image on fabric by Susan

Final project design - incorporating the hand stamped fabric, inspired by a piece of WAM art into a final design.  Elizabeth S.

If you missed this - be on the look out for Fashion Design - Medieval Flare, Part 2 starting at the Worcester Art Museum in January 2014 (see Classes & Workshops page for more info)!
