Made right (here)
MADE is an atelier and class series that shares the living tradition of fine sewing and couture techniques with Philadelphia students. Our classes are tailored to your experience, giving you all the tools and know-how you need to create beautiful things. We teach our students the right way to do things: the way of garments that are beautiful inside and out, perfectly-set sleeves, exquisite hand-sewn hems, balanced silhouettes and show-off finishes. Don’t be intimidated! If you are a human being, you can (and will!) learn the art of sewing here with us.
Our teachers and sewing gurus are the crème de la crème—artists passing down a living tradition of fine work and practical magic to our growing student body of doers, dabblers and dreamers. Our classes come complete with hands-on instruction, an endless supply of genuine patience and a healthy dose of inspiration. Whether you’re a total beginner, brush-upper or advanced sewer ready to launch her line, we offer a class MADE just for you.
DESIGNER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Introducing Philadelphia’s first affordable, independent, fashion design program. We’ve specifically tailored our classes to help aspiring designers develop and launch fashion lines of their own. Through small class sizes, hands-on teaching, and one on one mentoring, students receive quality classes at a cost and pace that works for them. This innovative approach to fashion education gives students a clear path towards their design goals, while streamlining the process down to a 12 month track.
We offer workshops for students who want to try out a class, expand their repertoire or learn about aspects of fashion and business. Our events series brings together the creative community through shows and seminars that put the spotlight on noteworthy projects and happenings in the community of Philadelphia artists, designers, business owners and creative studios.
Our bright and lovely studio in the artistic heart of Old City is the perfect place to escape to when you want to focus on a project. Fully equipped with all the tools and resources you need, we’d love to help you conquer those to-do lists and goals. Our monthly membership rates are designed to get you here and happily powering through your next project.
