Understanding Fabrics; Fabrics and FibresMy London College of Fashion course
Learning and upping my skills
My understanding of fabrics is based on what my mum passed onto to me, the basic knowledge of what we all know about the common fabrics, my instinct and personal taste.
But I want to dig deeper.
I am on a forever self-growth journey,…. I need to be, for my sanity and to keep my confidence to a certain level. I am always on the look out for ways to improve myself, my skills and develop my creativity. Learning is self-care and something we owe ourselves.
Learning about fabrics, fibres and their behaviours is essential to my progression in this field and learning with the best is a blessing I give myself
I found the perfect course at London Fashion of College. It needs no introduction but….London College of Fashion has been leading education in fashion for over one hundred years. The course I am taking is part of the Fashion textile short courses curriculum where you can study knit, denim and other fabrics and fibres.
The course is taught by Janet Wilson. “Janet, CTextFTI, has been a lecturer in the UK for over 25 years, teaching training courses for the clothing and retail industry. She has worked as a textile designer in the UK and Switzerland and specialises in the subjects of: woven fabrics, warp-knitted fabrics, weft-knitted fabrics, printed and dyed textiles, textile finishing, textile fibres and textile testing and quality. Janet is the author of Classic and Modern Fabrics: The Complete Illustrated Sourcebook, published in 2010. She continues to design fabrics on a freelance basis and is a member of the Textile Institute.”
Aside from learning, I am also excited to be among fabrics lovers like myself.
Wish me luck. I’ll come back with a review of the course. I promise.
