We are a design mad team running a small fashion design and dressmaking school in NW3 since 2001. We run classes for children, teenagers and ADULTS from very young (6+yrs) to very wise (no limit!) teaching dressmaking, fashion, crafts and all things textiles. We are a group of fashion designers, dressmakers and a Design and Technology teacher.
Kids and teenagers come to us just for fun, after school, saturdays and holidays; to get support for their GCSE and A-level Art, Design and Textiles, to prepare for a creative career or to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Adult students are looking for a relaxing hobby, some personal me- and social-time. Schools are impressed by our experimental approach and come to us for our inter-curricular projects from 'Historic Costume Making' to ‘Monster and Fairy’; ‘Science for Fashion’; 'Recycling' etc..
This position would ideally suit a fashion student or young designer trying to build up their own label.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual, passionate about designing and making, with strong interpersonal and strong dressmaking skills. (Please do not apply if you do not have strong dressmaking skills!)
Applicants should have a keen interest in passing knowledge on and enjoy the company of kids and teenagers (6-16yrs). We are particularly looking for individuals with a practical nous, great organisational skills and a good sense of humour. Teachers need to have natural emphatic skills and be extremely reliable.
At he begining of working with us we will get the new teacher CRB checked - applicant to not need to have that already!
Applicants should apply via FashionWorkie and submit CVs and notes as to their strengths and weaknesses and be prepared to be invited for an in-depth interview.
