Courses and Descriptions


Textiles focuses on learner understanding of textile terminology, characteristics of fibers, types of yarns, fabric construction and fabric finishes.

It is recommended for  students to consider taking Pattern Design, Textiles and Advanced Pattern in sequence.  These courses build on one another and they will combine to give students a consistent and continuous learning experience.  Students could continue with Fashion Illustration, Ladies Design Details and Ladies Jackets and Coats.  Sewing for Beginners and The Saturday workshops are all wonderful hands on experiences using students own sewing machines.
