This was a really practical workshop for developing critical skills in reading which can be used in many situations, I think... Well structured, functional and useful. Thank you.

Pattern Cutting and Drafting for Beginners (one week) - Nottingham Trent University

In-person
Cath Padfield - - #34445

Fantastic tutor with such a range of experience - was able to provide quality advice to everyone from hobby dressmakers up to professionals & educators. Everything was step-by-step, very clear and well-paced. Would definitely recommend.

Response from Nottingham Trent University:

Thank you for your lovely review Cath, it's great to hear you enjoyed the course! You're right, our short course tutor Leann is vastly experienced in pattern cutting and drafting for dressmaking and will be very pleased to hear your comments, which I will pass on. We hope to see you again soon for the follow on course (Methods of Creating Fullness at Nottingham Trent University)!

Our course tutor was extremely well versed in the subject and her enthusiasm was infectious. She also passed on great tips and advice for aspiring writers of the genre.

Contemporary Painting - Nottingham Trent University (Course inactive)

In-person
Attendee - - #24296

This course was very disappointing. The description & exercises looked excellent & the bronze award and good review encouraged me to enrol. I now see the previous review was written three years ago & the course has changed since then. This recent course was poorly organised & the instructions were confusing. I believe there are structured & inspirational ways to teach this subject matter, even though it’s not as easily defined.

Response from Nottingham Trent University:

Hi. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the course this summer. It’s one that has run in the past over five Saturdays very successfully (this was the first time we tried it as part of our intensive summer programme). We had good feedback from some students, but because we’re always looking at ways to improve our offer we are considering aiming this existing course at beginners (with some adjustments), and designing something that might appeal to a more experienced audience in the future.

Brilliant course. I enjoyed how thorough our tutor was in making sure we were happy. The schedule was well-defined, and I was able to get a large amount of work done that I am more than happy with. This has made me consider the MA Illustration course taught by the same tutor.

I really enjoyed the structure of the course – it really focussed my ideas! And the tutor is very passionate about what she does.
