This is a special price for Fashion Design Students and is Pay As You Go.  The student is  billed for six hours at a time in advance. Once sufficient skills are learned some sewing will be done at home to save class time. Each student goes at their own pace and can expect to take regular weekly classes for several months to accomplish the requirements for their portfolio. Because the program is tailored for each individual, and everyone learns at a different pace, there is no set length to the program.
