How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Class Experience

Students will learn:
Different types of fabric and what makes a good fabric choice
How to measure and mark fabric
How to thread a needle and tie a knot (if they are not already familiar, I will teach this)
How to read and follow a simple pattern
How to cut fabric and/or felt
How to use elastic
How to stitch layers of fabric together
How to create a simple personalized embellishment
The difference between fabric 'inside' and 'outside'
Finishing techniques

An illustrated project printout will be available at the end of each session so that students can sew independently if they desire
Several 1/4 yard pieces of fabric Several threaded needles (I will teach this if students are unfamiliar) All purpose thread 1/2 yard of elastic 1/4 yard of craft felt (or three 9x12" pieces of felt) Ruler Scissors a few pins an embroidery needle Embroidery floss A regular pencil Scraps of felt
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parent or caregiver presence is useful as we will be using scissors, needles and pins to make the items.
