Courses@FTM - A new season of fantastic short courses for fashion designers

7 December 2009

The museum has announced its 2010 schedule of IT courses for fashion designers.

All courses take place at the FTM near London Bridge in our recently refurbished Learning Suite, fully equipped with PCs running up-to-date software. Most courses come in a choice of timings, with availability on Saturdays, weekday evenings, and newly for 2010, as 3-day mid week intensive courses - so you should be able to find a time that suits.

Priced at just £100, we believe the training offers outstanding value for money compared to similar offerings elsewhere - and those claiming JSA can take one course, or several, completely free (eligibility criteria apply - contact us to find out more).

If you have any queries, please contact Chris Hall on chris.hall@newham.ac.uk or phone CIPs on 0845 650 4244.

Course highlights:

Kaledo Print and Kaledo Style   The Kaledo Print and Kaledo Style courses introduce Lectra's specialist software for fashion or textile design, and having taken a course you will be able to book use of the software at the Museum for a very modest fee, and to use it to develop your design work without having to purchase the software yourself. This software is really fantastic - come and try it through one of our courses.

Adobe InDesign Desktop Publishing   Our new Adobe InDesign Desktop Publishing course introduces this new software and will give you the skills to create high quality flyers, brochures, stationery and other promotional material for your business.

Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator   Our courses have been developed to meet the specific needs of designers working in the fashion, textiles and jewellery sectors. Training in these Adobe applications is delivered in small groups with a focus on your particular learning requirements. Courses are available to help introduce you to these programs or to help build up your confidence and skills to a more advanced level.

Full schedule

All courses incorporate 15 hours tuition. Evening courses run for 6 weeks (6.30pm - 9pm). Weekend courses run for 4 weeks (10am - 2.15pm) with a 30 minute break. Intensive courses run over three consecutive days. Click on the information link next to each listing for full details.
