Yes! Our 2nd Creative Course this February! And I am sooooo excited about it and truth be told, We have been planning this for A WHILE! This will definitely set you apart from every other designer! It doesn’t get much better than this right?! We all know what the constraints in our local market is in terms of fabrics and prints so why get stuck using the limited fabrics in the local market when you can simply create your own prints! And I tell you, this is a RICH curriculum, it would be really really sad if you let this opportunity pass you by!
I remember a while back a student was getting ready for an exhibition and had a particular fabric in mind but could not find the print she wanted to go with her concept. So we hooked her up with someone who helped her create the exact prints she wanted – PLUS if she had any left over, she could easily have sold it at the same exhibition killing 2 birds with one stone! Imagine creating your own prints and being able to use it for your collection and better still, sell what is left over! That is a pretty cool way of making extra income! And that is why I LOVE the fashion industry! There are so many ways to establish new careers and set yourself apart from the rest! And that this what this Course is about! 😀
What will you learn?!
Well… the flyer says it all but I can tell you the curriculum is even more packed!
You will learn about fabrics, how to identify them, how the local fabric market affects you as a designer, what they are used for, how to differentiate between different kinds of fibers and textiles and its suitability for your designs, fabric swatch books, embroidery, beading weaving, appliqué, fabric painting, stencilling, etc and this is just a snapshot of what you will learn. Those who really want to go into detail can include the Digital Textile design class and I tell you, that is really the ISH!
Duration & Course Fees:
Well to make it really easy for people, we decided to split the Course into 2 parts:
Part 1: Manual Textile Design
Part 2: Digital Textile Design
Part 1 will last 6 weeks and classes are on Tuesdays and Thursday from 10am – 1pm. The fees are N80,000 and this includes a standard toolkit you will use for the Course.
Part 2 is an additional 3 weeks after the Manual Class has been completed for those who want to go into digital textile design. The fees are an additional N50,000 for those who choose to do both. Classes are also on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 1pm and will commence after the manual design class.
We also now have a weekend option available for busy professionals. The full course will last 9 weeks; Saturdays only from 10am – 4pm with 2 sessions a day! We will keep you posted on the start date for this option.
Please note that you will need your tab for this portion of the Course. If you do not have one, you can order a digital tablet from us which you will connect to a laptop. You can budget an additional N30,000 – N35,000 for the digital tablet as we will only know the costs at the point of order.

Classes begin on 28 February 2017.
