Pattern and Garment Technology Fashion MA student offering Pattern Cutting and Fashion Design lessons

Methodology

Very friendly and bubbly tutor who is always happy to answer any questions and help with the set tasks! I have given lessons to BA Hons and Higher Education students, but will cater to all levels of pattern cutting and fashion design. My techniques are firstly explaining the task I have set for the class, show examples of my own and previous students work and design processes, such as design development and mood boards. I would then have a demonstration of the task I set, for example, drafting a skirt or coming up with a design and set the class to work on their own designs or pattern drafting while coming to each student to check how they are doing and what ideas they have and guide them if needed. I like to keep it friendly and creative so students feel safe to express themselves in their work.

Experience

I am currently an MA student with 6 years experience studying Fashion Design, Pattern Cutting and Garment Technology with 2 years experience working in industry. I have held workshops for pattern cutting students, teaching from beginner to intermediate level. The students I have taught have gained confidence in their own skills as I make very clear instructions and tips on the tasks and activities I set, while I overlooked and helped.
