At Center Studio 518, I teach in a fun, inspiring-social environment; instructing in a method that’s casual, hands-on and informational. Center Studio 518 is intimate and because workshops are limited in size, learners have plenty of access to me.
I want learners (you) to feel capable and encouraged during and after my workshops to go further with their (your) individual creative journeys.
Don’t get me wrong, my draping, flat pattern making, sewing and dressmaking workshops are intensive.
But, that's part of their beauty when taken at Center Studio 518--they're enjoyable, but they're serious business. It’s a learning workroom.
Learners must show up willing to participate and learn.
Learners must be dedicated to the task. My workshops aren't for excuse makers.
There’s a strong emphasis on active participation, quality and beautiful handmade-not "homemade", there’s no focus on perfection--you’re free to learn at a pace that’s comfortable for you as you’re mastering individual skills.
Center Studio 518 is a noncompetitive environment. Divas and bad attitudes are encouraged to go elsewhere.
Center Studio 518 isn't Project Runway.
I receive the MAJORITY of my personal learning by self-learning and self-study-- using good old-fashion (literally) books, trial, error, hard work and practice, practice and more practice.
Center Studio 518 is my workroom.
I’m inviting you in with open arms.
Welcome to Center Studio 518.
