YazBerry Handmade Fashion August Class Schedule

Since I have my act together in planning classes for August ahead of schedule, I will post it now so you can start thinking about which classes you might want to take and to plan your own schedule.

All classes will be held in the courtyard outside of YazBerry Handmade Fashion, Artists' Row, 24 New Derby St., Unit #5, Salem, MA 01970 (across from Walgreens).

Please e-mail to register or stop in the store. Class size is limited due to space. May be some room for drop-ins day of class.

Instrucción disponible en español.
Instrução disponível no português.

**Parents, please use your best judgment if you feel your child is the right age to participate in the various workshops. You are welcome and encouraged to come along to help them out as you see fit. I encourage interest in the arts as early as possible.**

FREE Demonstration: Fashion Design Process
Participation unlimited, Space Permitting
Open to all ages.

Wednesday, August 11, 6 PM
I will demonstrate how I go about designing a purse. From the inspiration, to drafting the pattern, selecting the fabric and beginning the assembly. I won’t finish the purse as it takes several hours, but will begin some assembly.

Workshop: Recycled Junk Fashion Project (2 Sessions) $15 (both sessions included)
Limit 5-15 Participants
Open to all ages.

Wednesday, August 18, 6 PM
Younger children should be supervised as use of sewing machines & hot iron may be required.
Session I: Participants will be presented with a varied selection of items not typically associated with clothing. They are encouraged to bring ‘junk’ from home. I will provide a large selection of items. Then, using imagination and tools typically found in a sewing studio, participants will create wearable clothing items and accessories from the junk.

Date TBD-Session II Student Performance: Participants will put on a fashion show showing off their creations. They will be encouraged to invite family and friends to view the fashion show.

FREE Workshop: Basic Sewing Skills/Make a Rag Doll
Limit 5-10 Participants
Open to all ages.

Friday, August 27, 6 PM
Younger children should be supervised as use of sewing machines & hot iron may be required.
Participants will learn how to use a sewing pattern, follow instructions on a pattern and assemble a 3-D rag doll. The Rag Doll Pattern is supplied by Rag Dolls 2 Love, Inc., an organization that donates handmade dolls to children in war torn and disaster stricken areas. Students will be encouraged to donate their dolls, but can also take the dolls and patterns home and share the project with friends.
