APPAREL AND TEXTILE PRODUCTION I
Apparel I introduces students to the history and current state of the Apparel and Textile Industry. Students will gain a strong understanding of fibers and different fabrics (textile science), the principles and elements of Apparel Design and understanding the basics of all the sewing tools and machines used in class. We cover many apparel sewing techniques such as seams, fasteners, selecting and following a pattern, and finishing a garment. Students bring in supplies to create self-selected projects designed to fit their creative spirit and level of ability. Students spend most of class sewing and practicing critical thinking as they work on projects.
APPAREL AND TEXTILE PRODUCTION I I
