Fantastic course! Mary and Ellie are both lovely and very approachable with great textile knowledge! It's nice to have an insight into a textile studio too! Such an inspiring place!
Mary and her team carry such a wealth of experience, their workshops really are invaluable. I came in from a graphic background but they were able to pinpoint my skills and help me work on areas that may need extra attention. They have that knack of being able to take your ideas and your talents and really push them so you can reach your full potential and your designs really can become the best they can be. And what is more, Mary and her team really are extremely welcoming and friendly and always such a laugh to be around. Couldn't recommend them more :)
Response from Mary Jones Design:Thank you Jen for your lovely words! :)
After working within the Fashion & textile industry for many years I needed a new direction.
With the support of the fabulous Mary Jones design team they kindly looked through my portfolio, they were positive, directional and very inspiring. It's difficult changing direction after many years but with the wealth of knowledge and experience that they have I felt very supported. I can't thank them enough.
Response from Mary Jones Design:Thank you so much Wendy!
Absolutely brilliant course! Whether you’re just starting out or have been in the industry for years, like me, this course is suitable for everyone. The course is tailored to suit your individual needs, whether it be basic photoshop/illustrator skills to the more advanced techniques. If you have any design or industry questions the knowledgable, friendly team are extremely helpful. If you are looking to develop your portfolio, this is the course for you! I would highly recommend. Thanks so much The MJD Team!
Response from Mary Jones Design:Thank you Debbie 😊
A brilliant course if you want to enter the industry or hone your existing skills. I learnt so much that prepares me for my textile design career that I hadn’t learnt at college. Great and patient tutoring making it easy to follow.
Would thoroughly recommend.
Response from Mary Jones Design:Thank you Emma I am so pleased we could help you
I did a one to one course at the Mary Jones Print Studio and found it really good. They gave me invaluable advice on my portfolio, gave me industry tips on how to move forward with my work and then we did a teaching CAD session which was brilliant. I would highly recommend the course or one to one sessions.
Response from Mary Jones Design:Thank you Julia!
This is a fabulous course , I was one of the first to benefit from the bespoke training. I couldn’t believe how much I learnt about photoshop and digitising my designs . Everything was tailored to my individual needs and I was given amazing support and encouragement throughout. Thank you so much!
Response from Mary Jones Design:Thank you Jo!
After graduating in textile design, this was my first time in a professional design studio as a new designer. Even though I was taught photoshop and design skills, I still learnt so much from Mary and the team who have so much experience in all things design. This is a course tailored to suit each individual and their design needs, definitely recommend!
