Fashion-friendly courses could give designers a push up the ladder
The fashion designers of tomorrow in Tower Hamlets can get a head-start by learning more at creative workshops from January 22.
Young people aged 14-19 can take advantage of the Fashion and Textiles Saturday Academy to be held at the Brady Arts Centre in Hanbury Street, Whitechapel and at the Central Saint Martins College in central London.
The college is running the scheme along with Tower Hamlets council to give young designers an opportunity to further their fashion skills.
Run by the council’s youth arts team, called ‘A’ Team Arts, sessions on offer include Make Do and Mend from 11am to 1.30pm which will explore the theme of recycling and sustainability in fashion.
Students will learn how to make new garments from old clothing and will earn Bronze Arts Award accreditation
