Course testimonials:

  • said: Rose is very knowledgeable and in the course she was able to naturally demystify fashion illustration concepts. Very patient too.

  • said: The course was amazing, it gave me confidence. Rose the teacher is very knowledgeable and she also explained Procreate program on IPad. It was very cold in room 3 this was the only one negative moment. Also, maybe hire Rose to do Procreate course because this is big in fashion Illustration industry now.

  • said: The teacher is very friendly and we learned a lot with her

  • said: Rose is brilliant! She was patient but moved us at a good pace and she made sketching and designing feel as though it was easily accessible to all. She taught the group a variety of techniques; form drawing, water colour painting, using charcoal, pencils, pens and even how to draw on an iPad! I've not come away from a workshop as thrilled as I have for this. Would recommend this to a hundred times over! I wish the workshop went on for longer...
