Fashion - How to Make a Fashion Mood Board Workshop

Making a mood board is a great way for young people to express themselves - and learn a range of eye-catching design techniques...

On our accessible How to Make a Mood Board Workshop, your young people will discover the secrets to making a professional mood board. Its not just about cutting out and sticking!

Along the way, they'll learn pro design techniques including 3D-layering and letter-blocking from workshop leader and SSS founder Sissy Rooney

What happens on the How to Make a Mood Board Workshop?

Sissy kicks things off by running a PowerPoint presentation that shows what a mood board is and how the group can use it to capture their style and influences.

She then shows the group examples of her mood boards – and demonstrates the techniques she used to create them, such as 3D-layering, tearing, and letter-blocking.

Your group will then make their own mood boards, with Sissy's help and guidance.
