FAQs

  • How much time should I spend on each module?

    Ultimately it is up to you how long you spend on each module but on average 1 - 2 weeks per module are recommended. You may find some modules easier and quicker to complete than others, which may take you a little longer. This would depend on the things you enjoy most about sewing and fashion design and on your previous experience.

  • How much fabric would I need for sample making?

    The amount of fabric you would need would depend on the amount of samples you are planning to make for each module. Around 2 metres of fabric (or different fabrics to create more colourful and fun samples) would be sufficient but you can use more to make more samples if you prefer.

  • Are the Q&A sessions compulsory?

    The Q&A live sessions are not compulsory. However, students have found them very useful. They are a place to meet other students in small groups, compare your learning experiences and also ask questions about things that you have found a little difficult. The sessions are for your benefit and will keep you motivated as you go, so while they are not compulsory - it is recommended that you are part of them as much as possible.

  • Do I get a certificate once I complete the course?

    This is a fun non-qualification course for fashion hobbyists and craft lovers. Upon completion of the course you will be emailed a non-qualification certificate. This is not an official document but it is a token of your achievement.
