All classes are packed with know-how and designed for students to reach a level of excellence in a short space of time which makes them real value for money. This sets us apart from most other fashion schools and sewing cafes. At Fashion Antidote we walk the extra mile and teach you all the tips and tricks of the trade so you come away with the best possible technical and practical understanding of the subject matter.
I throughly enjoyed the 1 week intensive Pattern Cutting course and learnt so much more than what the courses description described!! The course was so efficient and I feel my Pattern Cutting skills have developed dramatically. Cant wait to take part in another course this year.
I recently took part in the Learn To Sew weekend class at Fashion Antidote and it was fantastic! I learnt so much, and feel much more capable with my own sewing skills. The staff was lovely, and the studio was clean and had everything you needed. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn the basic of sewing! My class was small which meant I got great 1 to 1 help from the tutor.
Personal tuition in a small group meant that this course covered a huge amount of ground without losing us on the way. The tuitition was professional and friendly, with the tutors sharing practical, personal experience as well as instruction. Attendees ranged from amateurs wanting to learn to those wanting to make a business in fashion; the mix worked well. I will definitely take further courses from Fashion Antidote.
I enjoyed this course immensely. It IS intensive - it covered a lot of ground in a week, but I feel that I now have the tools to be able to experiment confidently creating patterns from an idea, as well as altering those I already own. I look forward to attending further courses - Fashion Antidote is very friendly and personal. All very inspiring!
I enjoyed the week's course immensely. I learned so many new techniques and now have to put them into practise. I made my own block for a skirt and bodice and now understand how to use them in a variety of ways. Susan and Serafina were excellent teachers. All equipment was provided and I have since invested in my own sewing tools which proved invaluable on the course. I would recommend Fashion Antidote to all aspiring dressmakers. I intend signing up for further courses in the future. Christine McNaughton
