Using “Dress Your Doll” mannequin, with all moveable joints, couture outfits, patterns and materials, we will be:
- creating mix and match outfits, pre-printed for ease, using needle and thread
- sewing fashion outfits from a selection of patterns and fabric
- drawing and colouring your own designs on paper just like a real fashion designer.
Find out about:
- Fashions from the past
- How fashion designers create their ideas
- Creating designs on drawings of models, called a croquis
- Accessories, bags, shoes, belts and scarfs
- Using colour, shapes, different textures
We will cover these over 3 sessions, each 2hrs long, mixing practical time with interesting information.
Those all important dates are:
Thursday 17th August
Thursday 24th August
Thursday 31st August
2pm – 4pm
Total Cost is £65
You will have many ideas to takeaway so you can continue your fashionista creating at home, along with the “Dress Your Doll” mannequin, that you can dress in your latest fashion designs, use her to pose in her outfits, drawing pictures to add to a sketch book.
The first session is £25 and others are £20 each. If you can’t come to the first one but would like to do one of the others that is fine, although priority is given to those who wish to book for all 3 sessions. Mannequins may be bought separately at a price of £17 each, they come in their own box which is designed like a changing room.
Recommended by School Head Miss Faye Bertham – “Mandy teaches the children in a fun and supportive way ….. with all children feeling proud of their achievements.”
Sessions are held in Tytherington.
