This six week course will blend skills in photography, microscopy, and Photoshop, with pattern making, sewing and draping. Week by week you’ll learn how to prepare biological samples for viewing under a microscope, and how to use a microscope to photograph the results. You’ll then learn how to take these images, import them into Photoshop and manipulate them to create a psychedelic, repeating pattern for your fabric.

While your fabric designs are off at the printer you’ll knuckle down in front of a Bernina and learn to sew. It’s then on to pattern making with your facilitator to create a suitable design for your garment. The final weeks will be spent draping, arranging, pinning, cutting and stitching as your design takes shape, transforming into the newest addition to your wardrobe.

This Fashion and Science course is for anyone interested in fashion, arts, crafts and experimentation!
