Student Comments

I love Linda’s class! It offers a very practical insight into pattern cutting that other more academic courses lack. The course gets down straight into the nitty gritty , from the basics to more specialised matters. After the course I now have the confidence to work independently while the class still offers the support needed for future projects. Linda is great at tailoring the course to specific needs and I am very grateful for finding such a nurturing environment to learn in. Highly recommend!

Having booked onto other pattern cutting courses at Colleges and then chickening out at the last minute I've finally found 'THE' place for me. Linda is thorough and detailed in her teaching and has a wealth of experience to draw upon, she's always genuinely interested in her students other personal pattern cutting projects and willing to help with any questions. The classes are informal and friendly and I come away from every one having learnt a great deal. So from being a complete beginner I am now able to understand the basics and intend to continue the journey.

Linda got me hooked on pattern cutting. I see it not just as a hobby but as a skill for life.You don't have to be artistic to create unique clothes from basic blocks - anyone can do it. And you are less likely to discard hand made clothes.

Nothing is more pleasurable than someone asking you where you got your dress from and you smugly say "I made it"!

Having attended a few short courses with other schools in the past, I came across Linda's pattern cutting classes by pure chance and have found her courses to be an invaluable resource. Linda is a very experienced and thorough tutor and works with the students in a relaxed manner, breaking down the art of pattern cutting into “bite size pieces.”Linda's courses have enabled me to understand how to pattern cut confidently - but I'm also privileged enough to have Linda working on the patterns for my label : Mutiboko Women's Wear

I have thoroughly enjoyed your classes especially enabling students to work at their own pace and still keep every one occupied and interested. Although most of the classes were based on woman’s clothing (which my dancing partner has enjoyed modelling for) the process and skills as you said are very transferable to men’s clothing – it has been very rewarding.

I have learnt a lot about style, fit and fashion which for a non- fashion conscious man has been an eye opener!

After unsatisfactory courses at other institutions I was at my wits end when my girlfriend told me of Linda. I enrolled in Linda’s pattern cutting class in 2006. She is a mentor above all others, her classes allow you to develop at a pace conducive to you as an individual.
I am extremely grateful to Linda for helping to realise my passion. Not only do I now create my own designs, I also make the patterns and sew them! (See picture of me in a print dress in the club on New Year’s Day).

This is my first term on the beginners course. The course has been great and I have learnt so much already and met lots of lovely people;I am definitely going to continue studying with Linda! The course is fun , friendly and is a great way to learn thoroughly and at your own pace. I would definitely recommend.
