Our first free Fashion Arts Workshop Series  was sponsored by a Creative Learning Grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council with support from New York City's Department of Cultural Affairs. They provided us with the resources to offer the free workshop series in the Fall of 2017 and the Winter of 2019.  Our grant was renewed for 2020, so we will be able to build on our success from the last three years! 


We teach interested kids how to design and sew their own garments from start to finish with fabric donations from Materials for the Arts.  We finished the workshop series with a kid-driven fashion show! Contact us for info on our Fall 2018 workshop!
