About the online course

11-16 and interested in Fashion? Maybe you are learning to sew, a keen knitter or love upcycling? On this 10 week course learn how to design and get creative with different techniques and materials. Get professional advice, tips and ideas about how to explore your interest further. You will get to know new people who have similar interests and increase your confidence.

We will be working through the Bronze Arts Award, a great Level 1 qualification which everyone will achieve by the end of the course. At the end of term we will have an online showcase of the artwork you have produced alongside the work from the other Creative Courses.

How does it work?

Every Thursday evening the group will log on to Zoom (a video call service) so we can go through a 'how to' guide of the next steps and also see what everyone has done over the last week. We will then give you individual support and arrange a check in with you on a Thursday or Friday evening so you can get an extra bit of help with your project and work at your own pace. As this is an online course we will give you as much support as we can over Zoom but it's important that you are happy and able to do some of the work on your own at home.

You will need to be able to access Zoom via a computer/tablet/mobile phone, if needed we will help you get set up with this before the course starts.

You will need your own item to upcycle, this could be anything from a pair of leggings to a pillowcase, or trousers to a top. We will check what materials you have at home and if there is anything else you need we will arrange to send it out to you so you can take part in the project.
