**SUMMER COURSE SPECIAL**

This summer, instead of twiddling your thumbs, why not come to the Grafton Academy of Fashion Design? Do something creative with your time off this year!! The Grafton Academy offers short courses in Fashion Design and Dressmaking. Full-time or part-time, for beginners and refreshers.

The inspirational and practical fashion design short courses will immerse you in the world of the fashion designer. You will be taught 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 beginners to advanced.

The Grafton Academy 2019 summer courses in Fashion Design or Dressmaking are quickly booking up. With less than two weeks left of ‘normal’ classes, our students are hard at it with exam prep and portfolio work. The summer courses are a little bit different however, no exams and all within the leafy surrounds of Dublin’s historic Georgian quarter.

ALL LEVELS OF EXPERIENCE WELCOME

WHICH COURSE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Fashion Design is the course where you learn how to design and make your own patterns with sewing included. You would first learn how to make simple patterns to your own measurements, or model size, after which you cut out and sew up the garment.

Dressmaking is the course where you learn how to make up a commercial pattern and no design or pattern making is involved. Students will buy a commercial pattern and fabric and get thorough assistance in making it up.

Students from other colleges and universities can also really benefit from our summer short courses because they can put all their focus into pattern making and construction techniques and not worry about other modules. We’re a boutique college with small classes and as a result we pride ourselves on our finish and attention to detail. Experiment with couture techniques or more avant-garde designs – whatever you want want to work on, our experienced teachers have done it all.
