Great class and wonderfull people
by Subra Praise - July 2016

The way the teachers teach is straightforward and understandable. When the sessions have finished the teachers are willing to spend extra time with you to ensure that you have accomplished what you wish to do for the last class. I would recommend this to everybody. I have learnt so much this past 5 weeks. I made a 2 skirts, a dress and blouse in 6 weeks!!! I definitely recommend this class.

I loved this class. The senior fashion designer, is an amazing teacher. I learnt so much from. They had excellent teaching plan, everything is thoroughly done and you receive one-to-one attention. Regardless of your skill you will learn how to sew during this 10 week course. Very impressed!

Sandra L (Excellent classes)
by sandra - May 2016

I have attended the classes for almost a year. The tutors are outstanding. I made many garments and learnt new skills at each lesson. I am now designing my wedding dress. I travel from SW London to the course which is quite a way. However, it is worth the money and time. Love it. Keep it up Marjorie

More pre course info needed
by Flora - February 2015

Staff at African Centre were friendly but beware before you book yourself on this course as you need to have some previous knowledge or experience to take the alteration course. I had to take a class for beginners which was not what I wanted to do. More information about previous knowledge of sewing needs to be included on course advert.
