Learn to Sew and Create Fashion during spring break!

The Fashion Class offers two fabulously fashionable camps during the March private school spring break and the April public school spring break. Campers, ages 6-12, can join us for one or more days – projects and lessons will change each camp day. Campers will learn to sew using a real sewing machine and make wearable clothing and accessories. We’ll also delve into DIY and create jewelry, accessories and room decor. To round out the day, campers will learn fashion sketching, painting and design in our art studio. Starting at 100 per day, all supplies are included. Join us in the heart of NYC’s garment district to learn all about Fashion!
