Clothes Making & Pattern Cutting Developing Professional Skills - All Levels

Our craft courses will teach you a range of creative skills you can use to start a small business making and selling your own unique products. They're also a great way to improve your dexterity, meet new people and develop an interest. 


This course which is a combination of two courses starts you with a solid foundation and progression in pattern cutting and clothes making.

The pattern cutting section teaches the learner to draft blocks of various body measurements and the adaptation of blocks to develop pattern pieces for various fashion styles.

The Clothes making however, train learners to construct clothes professionally. The creativity of the course with its holistic approach equips learners with employable skills into the fashion industry.

If you are on a low wage, unemployed or claim JobseekerÂ’s Allowance (JSA) then you can enrol on the course for free.


There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).

Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
