About the course

During this 30-week pre-advanced course you will expand your sewing skills and techniques by completing several projects, both written and practical. These include researching the theme on the brief and producing a sketchbook of design development followed by creating your own products to your own design. Completing these tasks will develop both your creative techniques alongside building upon your knowledge of product planning, marketing and construction. Your research will explore the creative industries, current trends and popular designers work as well as learning basic fabric/ textile information. This will enable you to advance your own creative ideas and practical skills during the course by designing and producing your own product.
