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
