    Adobe Illustrator Training – Fashion Design

    This Adobe Illustrator Course for Fashion & Textile Design focuses on the tools and features needed to work in fashion and design. You will learn how to create garments from flats, design and edit patterns such as lace, baroque and floral. The course is fluid and can be customised to specific criteria which is delivered over one or two days.


    Online Adobe Illustrator Training

    We still, depending on Government Guidance, deliver onsite training but at the moment we are delivering the majority of our Illustrator Courses online. These are held with a virtual live instructor who you will have contact with throughout the course. You will share screens and video in real time via conference video software such as Zoom, Teams, Google or WebEX. 


    All of our our digital design courses are available online. 


    If you have any questions about Online Adobe Training please do not hesitate to pick up the phone or drop us an email.
