Little Hands Design is a non profit community interest company offering a wide variety of fashion design and sewing classes. From just 6 years old and far beyond to adult classes. Including special half and Easter holiday classes for Kids.
But they don’t just teach people how sew, Little Handers are a fantastic creative and supportive community. They run a variety of events for their students throughout the year, most recently an interactive professional photo shoot!
When most people think of fashion, interactive and educational are not the first words that come to their minds. However, the fashion shoot at Little Hands Design proves that assumption wrong.
Children, teens and even some adult students braved the cold on a bright Sunday morning to model their handiwork. The interactive fashion shoot gave students professional hair, makeup, and the opportunity to shoot photos and use all of the equipment themselves, just like professional fashion photographers.
Instead of simply posing for photos while the photographers took the pictures, students were able to interact with photographer Daniel Sellam. They learnt the basics of photography, including how to use reflectors, how to adjust the lighting and compose the perfect shots.. They were incredibly eager to learn from Sellam and his assistant, Vini, who were both very adept at teaching the students how to use their newly acquired photography skills. Many students went home begging their parents for a camera so they could continue to persue their new hobby!
Of course, no fashion shoot is complete without hair and makeup. Students who were shy about having their picture taken gained confidence and blossomed as they left the makeup station with intricate design. Makeup artist Reena Bass was amongst one of the make up artists who adorned the students with her avant garde makeup designs and gave them skin, hair, and makeup tips as well. Bass is passionate about passing on her knowledge of skin care, which is why she is currently in the process of setting up a skin care advising session for the teen clients at Little Hands Design.
The fashion shoot at Little Hands Design was a teaching tool to educate clients about the elements of a professional fashion shoot. The fashion shoot was definitely a smash success, and it most certainly won’t be the last. If anyone wants to learn more about fashion, a class at Little Hands Design is an absolute must.
It’s the place to go if you want a hands on learning experience. As founder of Little Hands Design Astrid Jacoby once said, “you learn more when you try yourself.”
