THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

Join us as we leave behind a world of dull drab greys and step into a life of colour, magic and adventure as we explore our theme “The Yellow Brick Road”. Join us for our exciting after school classes. Design your own spectacular pieces to wear out and about.

Experiment with different fabrics, textures and design techniques as you dive deeper into the theme.

This is an exciting opportunity for our learners to take a basic pattern and use their skills to make a custom piece!

THE THEME

Embrace the Wizard of Oz Characters from Dorothy, The Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion, The Scarecrow, The Evil Witch and even her Flying Monkeys. Each Character has their own individual style that you can draw from.

Dorothy and her pastel colour palette with that pop of bright sparkling shoes, The Tin Man and his metallic palette and boxy shoulders, The scarecrow and his oversized clothing and fringed ends, The Cowardly Lion and his large presence think big sleeves and faux fur, The Wicked witch and her cloak and layering and finally The Flying Monkeys from their Military style jackets to feathers the ideas are endless!

AFTER SCHOOL VENUES:

OUR CLASSES:

They will learn the complete process of Fashion Design. Starting with Creative Thinking, learners will discover the whole thought process of how to transfer ideas onto paper. How to take inspiration from something. Producing a moodboard, documenting their thoughts, colours and textures. Then onto Fashion Drawing, where they draw their final design. With guidance from our experienced tutors, students will be trained in pattern cutting and garment construction. This enables the learner to explore, clarify and express their ideas through each of these stages..

All new learners need to bring fabric for their Beginner’s Projects. Fabric choice is very important, it lets the learner express themselves and allows them to explore. The textures, patterns and colours can inspire ideas and allow creative expression.As the learner becomes more confident you will see this through their fabric choices and in their handling of the fabrics in more complex ways.
