Slim's Summer Workshops Learn the intricate art of embroidery with master artist Amir Sali and more!

Aside from its regular lineup of summer fashion design workshops, Slim's Fashion and Arts School is introducing this year a Master Class series of workshops that are helmed by industry professionals who are “masters” in their line of work.

The first Master Class is The Art of Embroidery, which will be taught by renowned beadwork artist Amir Sali, who has had decades of experience in Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. It is an introductory course designed to provide students with an understanding of the various tools and techniques needed in the trade.

There will be hands-on sessions where students can explore threadwork and beading techniques. The classes will run through 6 full day sessions from 9:00am to 12:00noon, and from 1:00pm to 4:00pm every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from April 15 to 24. The enrollment fee is P14,400 (including materials). Enrollment is currently ongoing, and it's best to hurry as there are only a few slots available.

Aside from The Art of Embroidery, Slim's Fashion and Arts School also has two regular summer courses geared towards people who want to explore fashion design during their free time in the summer. Basic Fashion Sketching instructs students how to sketch fashion figures, anatomy and apparel design. There are 12 full-day sessions from 9:00am to 4:00pm, 3 days per week starting April 26, and tuition fee costs P18,000 plus materials.

In Basic Dressmaking and Pattern Making, students will learn to draft, cut, and sew a basic blouse, a skirt and a shift dress. There are 14 full-day sessions from 9:00am to 4:00pm every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from April 19 to May 21, and the course costs P16,800, including materials.
