Sievers School of Fiber Arts, Washington Island, WI
|17A||Garment Construction Intensive||(July 13-18)|
|Class Fee $400|
Daryl Lancaster – Wrap your body in clothing from your own hands. This is a terrific class for those wanting to learn to fit and sew clothing from their own handwoven, hand printed, dyed, quilted, felted, commercial or other special fabrics, as well as those more experienced students wanting more polished and professional results in their garment making. New students will construct a basic unlined jacket with pre-washed fabric you bring to class and custom-fit to yourself, while learning all sorts of inspiring techniques to make your clothing reflect your creativity. Returning students who have already made a jacket with Daryl in any of her classes may opt to bring their own patterns and agenda. You can expect to gain confidence in your garment construction skills, no matter what level, and will learn to work with your chosen fabric. Daryl’s goal is to have participants look at sewing as a creative process. Skills will be taught using samples, handouts, storyboards, Power Point presentations and demonstrations. (A supply list will be sent to you prior to class.) For new students only: Materials fee of $35 includes interfacing, pattern paper, twill tape, press bars, shoulder pads, and extensive bound notebook. Sewing machine in good working order and some minimal basic sewing skills required. A limited number of sewing machines are available to rent for class use. For all levels.
