FCFTA Leicester: Weekly Update 10th August

Congratulations to our first learners to complete the “Summer Special Course” 

Every week in August FCFTA Leicester is running a Summer Special ‘Introduction to Industrial Sewing and Garment Making.’ This week long course is the perfect taster – suitable to those that want a career in the garment industry but also those that want to learn to make clothes for fun. 

Look at the brilliant garments that our learners were able to make – all within 1 week! 


This week we welcome our second group of learners – with some coming a far away as Windsor! 

One of our new learners is a teacher and using her summer holiday to learn a new skill. 

We have places available for the next 2 weeks @ £75 for 1 week 10 – 3pm. 

If you would like to enrol please contact: fcftaleicester@fashion-enter.com

They have supported the Apparel and Textiles and Manufacturers Federation (ATMF) that recently launched in Westminster. It’s great to see this strength and support for Made in UK.”
