Description

We will explore different ways of creating a fashion designer's handbook - your personal fashion sketchbook. Creating a sketchbook is a chance for you to unlock your creative mind. It is a vehicle for you to challenge yourself, collect, record and process inspiration, try out ideas, explore success and failure, and to take risks. It is a place where nothing is precious.

Topic covered

  • The course will cover how to source, research and develop your fashion ideas whilst being fun and exhilarating.
  • A host of different techniques and media will be demonstrated at the start of each day so that you can explore different types of drawing skills.
  • There will be suggested venues to visit incorporating some of London's shops, museums, street markets, buildings, galleries and gardens as points of resource.

The outcome should be a big fat sketchbook filled with ideas, potential fashion collections and new confidence to feed the imagination and develop proposals.

Entry requirements: You must be at least 16 and no older than 18 years old.

Level: Beginners
