How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.

It is important to note that craft courses are practical requiring a degree of manual dexterity and students will need to participate fully to get the most out of the course.

Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
At the start of the course you will work with your tutor to develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set out what you want to achieve by the end of the course. You will both monitor and assess your progress throughout the course to ensure your learning needs are being met. There are no formal exams or tests to complete on this course

A basic sewing kit if you have one.
