18:00 - 21:00

Over the six weeks students will develop their Fashion Design creative skills.

During the Fashion Design for Beginners course you’ll study different processes and techniques for designing clothes, looking at different ways to research, record, create and present your work. The idea of the course is to develop a simple garment design with your own original idea, from concept to completion.

Students will be required to research, design, create a basic pattern and make one garment - a top - which will be the starting point of understanding what goes into making clothes and generating original Fashion ideas.

The course is suitable for beginners, it is a short fast-paced introduction and will require a practical hands-on approach.
