Group or Solo Sewing Tuitions : Machine Skill, Pattern Cutting, Garment Construction, Measurements, Fitting and Alterations.

Methodology

A one-one or small group is the aims and objective, so that each student will benefit from a finer detail constructive work. This process and approach enables the student to be more focused in the way they would like to be taught.

Background

I am a former student of the Nottingham Trent University, gaining an HND in Fashion and Technology (1997) and subsequently an MA in Performance Sportswar Design at the University of Derby (2009).

I have a great interest in manual pattern cutting and garment construction and have supported students with practical elements of garment construction leading up to their taking part in fashion shows and competitions. During 2016/2017 I travelled to China, supporting Chinese students in garment construction.

Seamstress – Goode Comfort – (2007 – 2016)

Teacher – City College Nottingham – (2004 – 2005)
This was a teaching in the community role in which my main duties included showing students the skills for manual and pattern cutting as well as pattern garment construction.
