Hi There

Welcome to the Diploma  Area of the Sewing Studio

This is where you’ll find all the information about projects, resources and the recorded studio sessions.

How it all works

You can either join us in our Studio, just outside Stratford, in person or via our live zoom calls for the taught sessions. 

These sessions will be where you will learn the skills and techniques to help you create your own capsule wardrobe. There will be demonstrations, activities and supportive critiques to help you develop and progress your work. 

Until we are safely out of the woods with Lockdown if you are coming to the Studio for the taught sessions we ask that you let us know in advance as we are currently only able to have 6 people in the studio. 

But if you prefer to learn online we will send you the links for the Zoom call in advance of each session. 

The course is made up of 9 projects that will combine together to help equip you with the skills and knowledge to create your collection. All the project briefs and resources you will need for each project are behind the boxes below. 

So click on the first box  and Let’s Get Started!


Nationally Recognised Qualification

Open College Network West Midlands are providing the accreditation for the course.

Each project on the course is made up of different units and these units each have a different credit value that added together provided enough credits to achieve a full Diploma.

We understand the varied reasons people would like to undertake this course, so to be as flexible as possible we have made the Business Plan Project optional. If you are thinking of using the qualification as a way to change career the Business Plan Project will definitely help to identify a way for you to do this.

To achieve the full Diploma all the units needs to be passed, but credit will be given for every unit passed. So even if you do not want to complete the Business Plan Project all your hard work will still be rewarded. 

Feedback and support

Throughout your studies all of the tutors will be able to provide you with the support you need to help you achieve your goals. Written and verbal feedback will be given regularly to help you improve and extend your skills. 

Feedback and encouragement will be given in both the Studio Sessions and via our Zoom calls. But if you need any questions answered along the way you can always email and we will help that way too.
