After examination and discussion of examples, the tutor will demonstrate drafting, cutting, appropriate stitching, construction and finishing methods. Handouts and other printed materials will be used as support for design and skill development. If you are a returning student, you will be able to build on the work you have already done. Teaching is delivered on site as a whole class, involving small-group discussions and teaching, demonstrations, photos and explanations of each stage of construction, as well as group discussion/ troubleshooting with the tutor. In order to ensure you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular constructive and supportive feedback. Good attendance and punctuality is crucial. You will not achieve the desired learning outcomes if you cannot attend fully and dedicate the required time between courses. Please inform your tutor regarding any lateness or absences. Teaching will be in groups and on an individual, one-to-one basis and you will be encouraged to develop your creativity.
