"The course gave me a good understanding of the types of print processes used in commercial fashion design and the materials which are best suited to each process. We learnt everything from basic file and artwork set up right through to setting up the machines ourselves for print. The course was very hands-on and the small class size meant that we were able to get individual assistance as well as work as a team to get a range of prints done. I found the course to be very informative and I was really happy to be able to take home a large selection of my own prints."
