You will be introduced to a range of processes and abstract cutting techniques, and from this you will develop ideas based on a given theme or concept. These will then be combined three-dimensionally to create your outfit.
Your tutors will work with you to give you an understanding of fabric, colour and form, and will teach you basic machine skills to enable you to realise your ideas.
Once complete, you will consider the final ‘look’ of your outfit and propose ideas styling tutors in a studio photoshoot. The culmination of the course will be an exhibition of your garments and imagery.
