From ‘Don’t know what I’m doing, help!’ Nervous Beginner to the Confident Advanced!
In the adult weekly classes you are encouraged to bring a project you would like to work on such a dress you may want to remake, clothes you want to alter or a pattern you would like to sew.
You are all thoroughly welcome to come and join the fun as staff enable and support you on your creative endeavours. We use domestic machines and teach professional finishes in our hub.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, The Fashion School - Chelsea
The Fashion School was founded in 2012 by Caroline Gration, with the aim to promote a healthy attitude towards fashion and individuality to children, teenagers and adults. Our tutors have at least a BA (Hons) in Fashion or Textiles, are DBS certified, first aid trained, Arts Award advisers and have experience within the industry and/or running their own business – we really know our stuff!
Students have to bring their own fabric and pattern paper. We will provide all equipment and thread. There is a small selection of sustainable fabrics available for purchase in the studio as well as trimmings, pattern paper and calico. This course will not teach you to pattern cut from scratch but we can help you to adapt and develop pre-made patterns.
Flexible cancellation policy
