The Fashion School in London and Brighton offers fashion, sewing and design classes for children, teens and adults.
Learn through make: We teach lifelong sewing and illustrative skills to support the creative process. From repairing/customising a pair of jeans to preparing sketchbooks and portfolios – we’re here to help.
Friendly and dedicated tutors: Over 50+ years collective teaching experience. All of our tutors have BA (Hons) in Fashion or Textiles and DBS certificates. Find out more here.
Beginners: Learn using our unique and easy sewing induction programme – successful for over 20 years . It really doesn’t matter if you haven’t sewn a stitch.
We encourage enquiring open young creative minds: Our classes and workshops are structured so each child can express themselves individually. Once they can sew, every student’s project is determined by them and we inspire and enable rather than dictate direction.
Two pathways for students to choose from and develop their own potential: Available in all classes. Learn more here.
- Fashion Pathway: Creating designs from concept to sewn garment. For those students wanting a fashion future or preparation for Art or Textiles GCSE/A level/Art Foundation etc.
- Sewing Pathway: For those students wanting to sew things for themselves in a relaxing environment with fashion as a hobby.
