Sewing and Textiles Lab
We are excited to teach everything from basic sewing skills to working with patterns & creating your own designs. And we already have a space half finished. This will be one more place where youth of one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in the US will now have an abundance of mentors and avenues to experiment with their own creativity.
We see budding fashion designers & costume makers using the space to learn, create & eventually market their products & designs.
We will offer after school programs & projects to teach these skills as well as adult education classes & groups.
This will be place where people connect around a hobby they love as well as inspire the next generation to try new things & discover their talents.
