Enrollment Online Courses Now Open
If you follow me via Instagram, Facebook or newsletter, you have already learned that I have been invited to participate in Thai Silk International Fashion Week for the second time. It’s fantastic to be able to do this, and I am enormously grateful to have this opportunity. Not only the fact that I will be able to showcase a collection, but also to meet peers from around the world in a collegial atmosphere in a beautiful location in Bangkok.
But … it also means that I will be able to teach extremely few courses in the studio this fall. I just lack the time!
Solution: online courses
Fortunately, there is a solution to this: online courses! And the good news? Registration for all of these online courses is now open!
Did you know that the online courses Dutch Couture Academy has established combine the best of both worlds? Not only will you be taught by Saskia through videos, photos, patterns, and other resources through a complete online learning environment. These are complemented by the ability to ask questions and connect with other students via a private Facebook group and Live Q&As! The nice thing is, you can get started right away at your convenience, while you are assured of the necessary support should you not quite figure something out. Handy. No travel expenses. No accommodation costs. Just from the comfort of your own home or studio.
The course program is moving more and more toward part-time training in couture in a broad sense. Consider a training program in craft techniques combined with personal coaching to move you on the plane between art, design and craft with a strong focus on quality and personal growth in craftsmanship and finding a niche. Interested? Email Saskia to make an appointment to speak to each other through ZOOM.
The online courses are part of this and will continue to expand into an online data base of inspiration and training in this context.
