Saturday Classes and Workshops

Try FIDM for a day and prep for your career

We offer two ways to experience FIDM on Saturdays: Classes and Workshops.

Saturday Classes are topical classes taught by FIDM Faculty and offer an invaluable opportunity to experience what it's like to be a student at FIDM for a day. Learn more about launching your career while you sample our hands-on, intensive approach to our curriculum. There is a non-refundable fee for these classes which includes supplies.

Our free Saturday Workshops are presentation based and taught by FIDM Staff. They offer an inside look at the industry, advice on how to launch your career in fashion or entertainment, and hands-on skills in areas like fashion sketching and trendspotting.

If you cannot attend a class or workshop but would like more information about FIDM, please fill out our information request form.
