Textile Training The Textile Training Centre delivers eight week sewing skills programmes to those in the local area looking to gain employment. Our Future Textile programme aims to address a skills gap within the UK textile industry and encourage new entrants with relevant vocational skills.
Programmes range from one day workshops which encourage young people to develop an awareness of the industry, to in-depth training programmes producing garments for the luxury fashion market. Supporters of the programme include major retailers and brands such as Yoox Net a Porter, Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane. As well as having the opportunity to develop sewing skills, there are workshops in woven and knitted textiles and hand and machine embroidery.
Programmes are delivered in in the Atelier in the main house, the Wellbeing Centre and the Textile Training Centre as well as at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London.
