Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Bag Making
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 - Apr. 27, 2018
Today in Bag Making, I worked on my shoulder bag/clutch. I specifically focused on the bow for my bag, which included doing a lot of hand sewing. I particularly love sewing the satin by hand!
Today in Bag Design in the morning, Veronica said that my drawings have improved. I drew the entire class, and she gave me tips on how I can improve. In the afternoon for independent study, I continued to do hand stitching for the bow.
Today in Bag Making, I finished the hand stitching for the bow, and added on a magnet to the back of the bow so that it can be attached to the bag when being used as a clutch. After class, I went to Senatori to get more supplies. Afterwards, I returned to school and had my last art class in the Color Theory section.
Today we had hand stitching all day! I continued to work on my red shoulder bag and made good progress! I brought it home with me to work on during the break, and it will be completed in the next class with Niccolo’s help.
For independent study today, I focused on Design in the morning and Bag Making in the afternoon. I got in the zone to design by putting on music, and successfully drew out some bags. Then after lunch, I worked on the shoulder strap for my bag and finished some small pieces. Here is a photo of me with two girls who are sadly leaving this weekend to go back home! I had worked with Aaliyah and Harriet for around a month, so it was a sad “Goodbye” but a sweet “See you later!”
