PCL and FabNewport are pleased to announce a five-week sewing program with fashion designer Candace French.  Participants will learn about kimonos in Japanese history, create a vision board to develop a sense of one's style and will work on miniature mannequins.  Candace French will help bring ideas to life as each participant creates their very own personalized kimono!

Fashion designer Candace French currently teaches classes at RISD CE Youth Program and at her own studio in Providence.  This five-week program runs on Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m. during February 6 through March 6. 

Please note that an adult must register their child and must commit to all 5 classes.  Participants may be ages 8-12.
