THE REMOVAL OF HOME ECONOMICS

Thirty years ago, home economics programs such as sewing, cooking and shop classes were a standard part of the education system. Today, most home economics programs have been removed from schools and our society is failing to pass these skills on to the children. Research has shown that practical skills such as patience, problem solving and delayed instant gratification can be learned in experience based educational programs such as sewing classes.

TEACHING PRACTICAL SKILLS

Sewing/textile arts classes are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.

SEWING/TEXTILE ARTS

Thirty years ago, home economics programs such as sewing, cooking and shop classes were a standard part of the education system. Today, most home economics programs have been removed from schools and many children are not learning these skills at home.

SEWING/TEXTILE ARTS IN LOCAL SHELTERS

Funds raised from sewing/textile arts and other trades classes at the Creativity Shell are used to pay for our public sewing/textile arts classes in shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking.

There is no “one size fits all” method to education! As the use of technology continues to increase throughout the education system, the value of trades decrease.  At the Creativity Shell, we believe that teaching our children the trades we know and use today will help them continue to thrive as a generation of makers instead of a generation of buyers.
