Internal Events

Regular internal events hosted by FTA, including open days, masterclasses and one day taster courses. The open days are aimed at potential new learners so they can understand what courses are available and see first hand the live factory environment and training facilities. Masterclasses are hosted with leading industry experts and aimed at new business start-ups looking for quality advice and guidance on running their label successfully. Topics include "Finding the right manufacturer", "the importance of IP, trademarks and copyright", "How to successfully run your own PR" and much more!

Also available are one day taster courses for those unable to commit to the full-time accredited courses. These range from Absolute Beginners "your block, your body" to advanced sewing techniques. All events are listed below with details on how to apply.
