BA (Hons) Fashion Design & Technology Graduate offering Pattern and Construction lessons in Greater Manchester

Methodology

Please take note: I teach pattern cutting skills which is an essential skill to creating your own designs. Sewing can also be taught but will incur a higher fee.

Fashion Design graduate with international academic experience. My graduate collection received the Abakhan Fabric sponsorship award, being heavily based around innovative pattern-cutting and drapery techniques. It was presented during London Graduate Fashion Week as well as highly commended for the Creative Conscience Award.
________________

Teaching students aged 15+ fundamental basics to free hand pattern drafting in the fashion industry.

Pattern-cutting is the essential skill of all designers in bringing a design to life from a 2D perspective to a 3D wearable garment.

Block patterns are used for standardised sizing, but for a full understanding of how patterns work, I will be teaching the basics in drafting and developing a basic skirt pattern, which can then be used for your own designs.

My lessons would be a vast advantage to students finishing their GCSE's or A-level's Textile who wish to continue further on to Fashion at foundation/university, as it will provide you with a insightful head start on a crucial aspect of all Fashion courses.

However, these skills are accessible to everyone from all professional backgrounds, so if you'd like to learn about the creation of garments from scratch, these lessons will be as easily enjoyable.

Lessons will be easy-going, very much working at your own pace. If there is something you'd like to make, I can provide tailored lessons to work towards your goal.

Experience

I've been tutoring students on Pattern-cutting informally in the past to help them understand the lessons taught whilst at university.

Pattern and Production aren't included in school curriculums unless you're doing a Fashion diploma or Fashion at degree level. However, pattern cutting and especially drafting can be very difficult at first entry and getting a good understanding of it prior to a university degree beforehand is a great advantage that I benefited from.

It is still a very creative part to Fashion construction and I've helped all the students I tutored to see the fun aspect to it too. First time doing it professionally so all feedback is good feedback!
