Fashion & Textiles Courses - Online & in London

Our wide range of fashion and textiles courses offer students both practical guides and bags of creative motivation, providing opportunities for learners to explore the traditional and contemporary. We offer beginner courses for learners who want an introduction to sewing through to intermediate classes that focus on specific techniques such as shibori and creative machine embroidery. Our classes support experimental approaches as well as more traditional skills.

Our team of experienced artists and expert tutors work with learners, supporting you to overcome barriers and realise personal ambitions. Our purpose built studio provides access to industry standard equipment, height adjustable tables and chairs and good natural light. Just down the hall learners can combine their hand making with digital design by joining one of our textile design courses.

The textiles community at City Lit is very strong, don’t be surprised if you join a class with someone who has attended that class before. We value all our learners and welcome new students to contribute and diversify our burgeoning community.

All of our courses have basic materials provided but please read the full course outline before you book as the tutor will list anything you need to bring along.
