Fashion and textiles

Sewing, crochet, quilting, dyeing and up-cycling. We've got you covered when it comes to fashion and textiles.

On our fashion courses at Activate Learning colleges, you can refresh your wardrobe and personal style under expert supervision, create your own fashion item from scratch on our popular Simply Sewing courses, or gear up for a career in fashion with our in-depth look at the fashion industry and how sustainable fashion is coming to the fore.

In just five weeks on one of our programmes, you can go step by step from your initial design to constructing a completed garment.
Get an introduction to the principles of pattern cutting, garment construction and learn how to develop your ideas into unique patterns, ready to assemble your chosen design. 

Alternatively, learn about the broader fashion industry, how to upcycle clothes or how to make fashion work for you. 

At Activate Learning, you can learn key sewing techniques, simple garment construction skills and how to work with easy fabrics. By the end of your chosen course, you will walk away with the skills to create your own fashion and a completed garment of your choice.
