Fashion: Digital Manipulation

when 22 July 2019 - 9 August 2019
language English
duration 3 weeks
fee GBP 2

During you will explore fashion trends and the wider world of textiles for Fashion. Taking inspiration from Birmingham, you will work with staff to develop a digital print, which you will then bring to life in a simple garment.

What will you study?
You will be introduced to a range of design print processes and CAD skills, and from you will develop ideas based on a selected trend. You will develop your ideas into a simple repeat pattern which once applied to fabric will then be used to create a sample garment.

Your tutors will work with you to give you an understanding of fabric, colour and repeat, and will teach you basic machine skills to enable you to realise your ideas. The culmination of the course will be an exhibition of your garments and CAD work.
