We were invited to participate together with other local businesses at the event ” Future You”. Westfield teamed up with local communities and talent to host a series of amazing careers events, creative arts workshops and wellbeing activities. We delivered two workshops. One run by Chantelle Johns and one by Oana Balan. The first one, consisted in getting familiar with the concepts like: dart, grain, pattern, hipline, waistline. The participants were introduced to the task and familiarized themselves with the patterns, which they consequently traced and cut out.
The second workshop showed them how to thread a sewing machine, and practice their first stitches. In the second part of the task they produced weaving samples by sewing horizontal and vertical straps onto a patch of fabric.
