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.

Alterations – For over 9 years I have supplied high standard alterations for customers who give great feedback and bring repeat business. My skills cover male and female fashion wear as well as furniture.

RELEVANT EXPERIENCE
Lecturer – Gottelier Creative Fashion and Design, SIVA – (March 2016 – June 2017)
My main duties include creating lesson plans and supporting students through these to aid their learning in technical and practical tasks. I was also responsible for 1-to-1 support, especially supporting end of year fashion shows. My duties also extended to general maintenance of the workshop and machinery within it.

Seamstress – Goode Comfort – (2007 – 2016)
To hone my skills and develop technically I launched my own business offering high quality alterations, on various garments including menswear, ladies wear and soft furnishings. This helped to improve my abilities and I have built a happy customer base and can provide samples of completed work.

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.
