Course Outcomes

Our Sydney college offers sewing classes designed for beginner and intermediate sewers looking to achieve professional dressmaking finishes to their projects. We also have advanced pattern making & garment construction courses for professional and couture sewers wanting to specialise in a particular area, learn industry techniques and refresh or upgrade their skills.

Students who do not have basic sewing or pattern making can be provided with initial training to attain the skill level required to undertake more advanced courses. Those who undertake classes within this program and decide to progress to the Professional Fashion Design Course are given credit for the work already completed.

Course Duration

Minimum attendance for these classes is 3.5 hours per week. A short course program may extend over a number of terms depending on the student’s skill level and subjects chosen.

Study Method

All sewing classes and fashion design short courses are designed in consultation with the student so that they are targeted to the skills the student requires. Our programs are designed to progress at the pace of the learner, so all skill levels are given the support to maximise their potential.
