What will you learn?
- how to approach fashion from ‘cradle to cradle’ in a sustainable and ethical way
- learn how to buy, design, make, alter, look after and dispose of your fashion items in a conscious way
- how to use the sewing machines and basic tailoring skills
These practical, hands-on, fun-packed sessions will teach you how to develop your own unique dress sense, become responsible consumers and how to design and make clothes and accessories whilst being mindful of the environment. We are lucky to have the support of leading fashion brands and will experiment with their kindly donated industry waste materials of highest quality. We will dive into the world of mending, altering and thrifting, learn about the life cycle of clothes, become socially conscious influencers and find out about new technologies aimed at reducing the impact of fashion on the environment. Priority is given to pupils wishing to complete their Duke of Edinburgh ‘skills’ (from age 12+ yrs) who can then also continue to join us for their ‘volunteering’ (from age 14+ yrs). But we also welcome younger (from age 8+yrs) and older fashionistas (no age restriction!) with a keen interest to learn and become creative!
Who is this for?
Young people (8-18years) with priority given to a) teenagers wanting to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Skills award who can then also apply to continue with volunteering or b) pupils taking GCSE/A-levels in textiles, art & design or fashion. Suitable for all skills levels.
We are flexibly set up to teach in person with social distancing and online. Following Government and London School of Mosaic’s guidelines. In the case of continuation of social distancing measures the class will be split attendance half online and half face to face. We can accommodate students joining online only should you prefer this or in the unlikely case of government guidelines requiring us to do so!
