I am really enjoying the Distance Diploma (now Apparel Creation) course I find it challenging and creative. I initially trained as a hairdresser/makeup artist, but couldn’t find the backup in my apprenticship. When I started the Diploma I thought it would be a lot easier, but I found I can learn at my own pace and I get great feedback from my tutor, who lets me know where I have made an error and why. The most difficult thing is waiting for the feedback but the tutor goes into great detail and helps me understand. I am setting up work experience for myself with a Hamilton designer who is into 1950’s rock vintage, and am really looking forward to it. I have only done the sewing, skirt and fitted T’Shirt modules so far, but the garments fit well and the Academy is impressed with my work.
