Previous attendees have commented;

The seminar was very interesting and I have found out a lot of different techniques.  Explanations of all of the processes were great.  It was really useful to understand how the fabrics are made.”

“I have learnt a lot more in depth knowledge of the process within fabric.  The course was fabulous.”

“This seminar has taught me all about fabrics, what they are made from and the process from start to finish… it was really interesting and knowledgeable – it makes you realise how long the process of fabric and finishing can be.”

“This course was brilliant, especially for people that have no training or a basic understanding.”

“I would definitely recommend this short course to university students.”
