All skill levels welcomed! We offer many classes and workshops throughout the year including Pro D Day and spring/summer/winter camps. We have small class sizes with no more than 8 enrolled in each course. Our method to teaching is a multi-sensory approach, where individuality is encouraged.
Students will complete stylish projects while learning basic sewing techniques. Students will learn how to modify and layout patterns, cut fabric, construct, sew using a machine and hand stitching.
La Movida provides all students with thread, rulers, scissors, pins, and state of the art sewing machines. Fabric costs are separate averaging approximately $40 per term. Payments for fabric costs are collected mid-term.
PRO D DAY WORKSHOP
Bring a small snack (10 min break) or bring a lunch if you are staying the whole day.
Time to start creating! In this course, students will complete stylish, on-trend projects while learning basic sewing techniques. Students will learn how to determine the perfect fabric choice for their project, modify and layout patterns, cut fabric, construct garments and seam finish. This fall season, students will be making a wallet, backpack and jacket! Two weeks of this course will be dedicated to fixing/up-cycling anything students have from home! This could be a stuffie that needs to be mended, a cardigan missing a button, or anything you have that needs to be fixed! Price for 13 classes (1.5 hours per class) running Sep 11th to Dec. 11th. No class on October 9th. Join anytime if a spot is available. Price will be prorated for classes missed due to late start date. *Fabric cost not included
SENIOR & JUNIOR DESIGNER
Ready to make your design dreams a reality? Developed with the budding fashion designer in mind, this course teaches students to sketch, design and construct their own mini collection. Throughout this course, students will use their pre-existing sewing knowledge to take on fashion/technical illustration, pattern drafting and modification, and, of course, garment construction. One year of La Movida courses is a prerequisite for this course. This course was developed for advanced students who excel at independent, creative thinking, and need little guidance in creating basic garments. Price listed is for 13 classes (1.5 hours per class) running Sep 11th to Dec. 11th. No class on October 9th. Join anytime if a spot is available. Price will be prorated for classes missed due to late start date. *Fabric cost not included
