The Fashion Loop’s training courses came about as a result of people expressing their desire to learn the skills needed to create good quality garments that fitted them, and fitted well!
Clothes on the High Street may tempt with the latest trends, but the pleasure is limited if they don't fit well and flatter.
The aim of The Fashion Loop is to offer fashion workshops and courses that provide insights into the fashion design and sewing industry and equip learners with skills and confidence to achieve their personal goal, whether they are a sewing enthusiast or aspiring to pursue professional or entrepreneurial goals in the fashion industry.
We understand there are many different reasons why you may aspire to learn new skills or develop the expertise you already have. Our goal is to make professional fashion and sewing skills readily available to everyone and assist you to bring life to your vision.
Our Fashion Courses & Workshops
The Fashion Loop offers a curriculum of courses aimed at people with varying skills and experience levels. If you are a newbie, our beginner’s courses can help you take the plunge and establish your creative journey.
Our courses are delivered in a relaxed professional studio with beginner-friendly language, industry-experienced tutors and flexible class times. Through our small class sizes and hands-on teaching, you can expect tuition with plenty of interaction and the chance to share experiences and ideas, at a cost and pace that works for you.
The length of our courses can vary from a few hours to a one-year programme and can be tailored to meet a range of personal requirements. There is an opportunity to progress sequentially and widen your skills from basic to advanced levels while choosing exactly the areas in which you wish to specialise in. Or maybe you would prefer to choose a one-off workshop - perhaps as a gift or treat.
We can help you choose the right course or sequence of courses to fit in with your goals and ambitions.
Our courses provide the technical and creative skills and knowledge required if you dream of following a career in the fashion industry or of starting or growing a fashion-related business. We can help you develop your creative skills and craftsmanship.
