Talking Sampling and Small Run Production


On 29th May, FEL’s Head of Technical Development, Claire Solley, presented the monthly edition of our free 1-hour masterclass series. Her live presentation on Zoom discussed the topic: ‘How to Manufacture Your Garments – Part 1 Sampling & Small Run Production.’ The session was joined by learners and residents at the FC Designer Workspace as well as 28 external attendees.
