In the words of Tim Gunn, learn how to “make it work” in this unconventional costuming class! Using found objects and materials, young designers will develop their creativity in a series of challenging projects, such as draping a costume with only one fabric or styling traditional garments from cultures around the world. Students will become familiar with a variety of textiles and develop drawing and problem-solving skills, as they brainstorm ideas for the final pieces in their collection.
