Course description

Make A Customised Dress Form:

Clothes and clothes patterns come in ?standard? sizes based on ?average? measurements but very few people are ?average? as the size, shape, proportions and posture of every body is different. This can make creating a good fit in a garment very challenging. If you would like to have a dress form which is a duplicate of your body to use to fit or drape garments more successfully, this course is for you. It is also useful if you want to make clothes for other people. Once you have your own dress form, you will be able to fit your garments with ease. No previous experience is required to benefit from this course.

I really enjoyed this course, here is my experience of it
by Nicki - January 2017

I had always thought of my self as a creative person but had not looked into graphic design as a career before now. I was looking for a short course to see what graphic design is all about and this was perfect. I was an absolute beginner to graphic design at the start of the course and by the end I had produced a small portfolio of work of which I was happy with. Our tutor was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject and made the lessons fun and interesting. At the start of the course we were given a brief with tasks to complete over the 10 weeks. Each lesson we learnt things that we would need to know to help complete the brief. We learnt about layouts, typeface, colour and more. We also learnt some basic techniques in the 3 adobe programs by watching then doing, accompanied by hand outs to take home. This included techniques to create logos, posters and booklets and edit photos. As recommended on the description of this course and by the tutor on the first day you really do need to do work at home to make the most of the lessons. Our tutor also told us some recommend reading after most classes of which I found very helpful. The work I did at home included reading, youtube and adobe tutorials, sketching and hours and hours of playing around with the different programs. It can be a little slow and frustrating learning the programs in the group lesson but the pace was mostly good and the lessons along with handouts were a great starting point for work I continued at home. The more work you can put in yourself the more you will gain from this course, I really enjoyed it myself and would recommend it to others in a similar position.

A Great way to learn Adobe!
by Alex - December 2016

The course is full of activities, perfect for begginers. For sure, the course gives a basic information, but, the teacher gives a lot of tips, supporting literature, website and ways to learn and explore the software. I wich the course could be extended, once, I really enjoy every single class. Stephen has a great knowledge and always is read to asnwer questions. Deffo, i reccomend it.
