What our students say

"I came to TAFE so that I could learn the skills to create something from nothing and as such my process has evolved since enrolling here. Learning pattern construction has meant that my designs now have a better fit and are more wearable."
"My philosophy for my label Awkward Chat is no matter how awkward it is, let's initiate & encourage conversations about where our purchases come from. I've loved the sustainable focus at this TAFE - I was really pleasantly surprised and didn't expect it. We've made a few recycled garments and a lady came and showed us weaving, so it's been really very cool.
