OUR ETHOS: Working in equilibrium
The New Sewing School’s goal is to be a learning space in fashion & textiles.
We develop your sewing skills and creative language through: - Industry used theories and communications - Making space for your individual working habits, strengths, limitations, wants and needs - Boosting confidence and removing anxiety towards reaching your personal aspirations
Our way of doing starts with the working culture that The New Sewing School we encourage and cultivate from teachers to students.
Create freely by choosing the path of less resistance, removing the barrier of conventional perfection.
Did you make mistake? Or did you find a new way to sew and create? We'll encourage you to think critically about your relation to quality norms within the fashion industry, and invite you to challenge commercial standards.
