This summer, instead of twiddling your thumbs, why not come to the Grafton Academy of Fashion Design and pursue your dream of Fashion Design? The Grafton Academy offers short courses in Fashion Design full-time or part-time during the summer for beginners and refreshers. Students may book in for weeks of their choice, June to August. Students learn how to design, cut patterns and make up one or two of their own creations starting with skirts, bodices, dresses and trousers. All ages are welcome, from young to mature. No previous experience is required.
The inspirational and practical fashion design short courses will immerse you in the world of the fashion designer. You will be taught all about the fashion design process from research through to drawing, figure work and design – from concept to completion. The short courses are flexible to suit your preference. Teaching is by individual attention within a classroom environment to cater for different skill levels from beginning to advanced and all in the leafy surrounds of Dublin’s historic Georgian quarter.
If you have a desire to take up some creative activity, you should listen to that desire. If this is the outlet for your creativity that you’ve been looking for – stop looking and stop twiddling those thumbs!
We don’t ask that you have any previous experience and students can join at any time depending on our availability. If yourself or someone you know might have a particular interest in a course like this then you should contact us. We’ll be more than happy to give you more information on specific courses and dates available.
