  • Is this course for you?

    Fast Fashion has been the catalyst for a problem which has been brewing for a long time in the textile industry. This Up-Cycling Fashion Skills course looks to help make sustainable fashion choices, developing techniques to take old, worn out or damaged clothing and transform it into something new.

  • Required qualifications

    No formal qualification required, just a passion for all things textiles, and the desire to develop sowing and creative design skills to transform old clothing into something new.

  • What skills will I develop?

    This course will collectively bring together a cohort of like-minded students to explore and experiment with clothing and textile techniques, helping to deconstruct ready-made garments and plan, design and transform old clothing into something new, expressive and full of style and confidence.

  • Careers

    Upcycling is the future, The World Wildlife Fund estimates that it takes 20,000 litres of freshwater to make one kilogram of cotton; enough for a pair of jeans and a t-shirt! And with farming accounting for 70% of all freshwater use, we can expect to see dramatic changes to the industry in the next 10-20 years.

    Fashion industry statistics for the UK estimate the industry’s worth at about £60.3 billion in 2020 and £62.2 billion in 2021. The UK fashion industry also employs about 555,000 people, according to Fashion United.
