Quotes following the day:

‘We loved the two day course, it was of course very informative and the relaxed delivery made it also very enjoyable. Thank you all so much for a lovely 2 days, special thanks to the furriers for sharing their knowledge and for their patience.’  MB, Technical Tutor for garment construction, University for the Creative Arts, Rochester

‘A huge thank you to the furrier and team for their patience and their very generous knowledge sharing. I really enjoyed being taught new skills that stretched my capabilities. It was quite humbling being the ‘student’ again and learning how to handle the fur and how to get an understanding of the versatility. Fur is an amazingly magical ‘fabric’ that has so many unique qualities.’  KC, Technician garment construction, University for the Creative Arts, Rochester

‘I really enjoyed the two days working out how to manipulate my pattern for fur and understanding the methods involved in creating a garment. I know we only skimmed the surface but I’m sure we all agree that it was a fun fur few days (pardon the pun). Many thanks to the team for being so inspiring and welcoming us into your world.’ LH, Technical Tutor for Pattern cutting, University for the Creative Arts, Rochester
