Behind The Scenes Series

HOMESCHOOL CLASS!

Taught by Lesa Bledsoe

Ages 10 - Adult

Class: Mondays, 1:00 PM-2:30 PM*

*Behind the Scenes Theatre Arts Practicum in Sewing will meet in the daytime on Mondays during the semester for five sessions. It is scheduled so that homeschooled students ages 10 and older may also take morning theatre classes on the same day! Adults welcome too!

There is a possibility that students will be able to complete an optional sewing project during the production of Nutcracker.

  If you want to make costumes, then you need to know how to sew!

        In this hands-on class, we’ll keep it casual and fun (but also safe and attentive). We’ll start with the basics – learning your machine, basic ironing techniques used in sewing, safety rules, how to read a pattern, choosing the material and other sewing notions, and cutting out. We will also cover basic hand-sewing skills. 

     Our first project will use straight stitching and should be finished in just a few class sessions. As time permits, students will choose a second project and work at their own pace. The projects will be enjoyed by boys, girls, men, and women! Everyone is welcome! If you have the desire, it’s never too late to learn.     

     Homework not required, but you may not be able to resist!

     **Please bring all supplies to first class**

Supplies Needed: Sewing machine (and instruction manual – look online), extension cord, sewing machine needles, basic sewing kit that includes fabric scissors, pins, 6” metal ruler, hand sewing needle, tape measure, thimble, and a container in which to keep all your supplies. NOTE: you can find the sewing kit at Walmart for less than $10 and the container can be anything that has a secure lid. Email at classes@getintotheact.org with ANY questions about supplies.
