Ese Akpobro

Ese found out about the Fashion Technology Academy when she picked up a flyer of the courses provided at a job centre appointment. Ese has always had a passion to learn to sew, as her mother was a Tailor and she felt inspired to learn and create just as her mother did.

Ese contacted the Fashion Technology Academy to enquire about the courses provided, soon after she enrolled onto the Stitching Academy Level 1 course. Since then she has completed both Level 1 and 2 Stitching Academy courses and has recently started the Perfect Patterns Level 2 course.

Ese states: “I never really knew these courses existed and as soon as I found about the Fashion Technology Academy, I jumped to the opportunity and contacted the admissions team to register onto the Level 1 Stitching Academy course. Since enrolling onto The Fashion Technology Academy courses, I have gained a wide range of skills including; construction of a garment, the use of industrial machines like Flatbeds and overlockers. I’ve also learnt essential sewing techniques such as; quilting, piping and cross stitching. I would definitely recommend the Fashion Technology Academy to anyone that wants to learn to sew or even to grow their technical skills. The courses provided cover a broad range of topics and as a beginner there is fantastic support given to you by brilliant and talented tutors.”

Upon completing the course, Ese says she would like to create bespoke designs for clients and gain more confidence to create pieces independently.
