This class is offered once a month for a year. Each scheduled class is a full day. Can you describe what happens during those classes?
Christina: During the class days, we will meet all together and go over the day's planned topic, which is really a mini class: ie. understanding commercial patterns and garment basics. Then each student will have the rest of class time to work on their own garments, with my assistance.
What is the ultimate goal of the full year program?
Can you explain why slow fashion is of interest and important?
This class allows students to pick the intensity of skills and lessons they want to learn. How do you manage and discuss that with individual students?
Christina: Together, all students will learn, or refresh their knowledge, of patterning and basic garment construction. Then each student will work independently on building their capsule wardrobe. I will make rounds while students are working and try my darndest to meet everyone at their own skill level.
At the end of 12 months, what should students expect to gain and tangibly have?
The last class is a presentation and celebration? What does that entail?
On average, are there a minimum number of garments a student can expect to complete?
Who is a good candidate for this class?
