Young Designers | A 10-week course at Making Space

Over the last few years teaching… and teaching young people in particular has become a huge focus of my work. It’s something I get so much out of and enjoy immensely.

For four years I ran a weekly Fashion School at The Spring in Havant and over those four years I’ve worked with loads of inspirational young ladies who are so incredibly talented. Unfortunately The Spring had to cancel the course last month so rather then mourn the end of one era I have decided to make the most of a bad situation and turn it on its head and make it into a very good thing.

I just confirmed with Making Space that I will be running a new course called Young Designers. I’m so excited… I will be running this course throughout the year in 3 x 10 week blocks and will be working with a group of young designers as we look at a whole range of creative industries. From Fashion to illustration, photography, hair and makeup, design, styling and textiles. We will be covering the whole shaboodle. I will be responsive to what the young designers want to do, we will set project briefs together and they will work together and independently on creative outcomes.

I hope to imbed the Arts Award in the sessions and also work towards a showcase at Making Space’s annual Open Studios and do an end of term show at the end of a the academic year.

The course has just gone live on Making Space’s website  and the details are as follows:

Autumn Term 2016:
