  • Training will take place via Zoom video call, its simple to use and allows us to see each other, share our screen to demonstrate and even allows us to take control of your mouse and edit your work with you, just like if we were there in person.
  • Based on your requirements we will place you with the Tutor most suited to your needs. Stephen Rose is our print expert and Erica Horne specialises in Fashion design, either way, you are in very capable hands. 
  • All our sessions allow an extra 10 mins at the start to ensure any technical difficulties are resolved before your valuable paid for time starts. If at any stage you are struggling or something is not working you can call us and we will talk you through it. 
  • You will need to have the Adobe software installed in order to practice in between sessions, if you are unsure how to get this then let us know, we can help. 

If you are interested in extending your learning with us we can offer you a further 20% discount if you book more than 4 hours. Contact us on to discuss.

Absolutely brilliant way to study. Especially for CAD. It’s almost as though it was designed especially for it. I wasn’t sure about learning this way to begin with, as I thought that it could be distracting to my concentration and felt nervous about it. I had absolutely nothing to fear, especially with the whole lesson being recorded and you could go backwards and forwards for constant reminders. The fact that there was screen sharing was also a good thing. This is for certain a way forward for me and will highly recommend.

Having had several CAD lessons from Erica at CAD For Fashion, I can highly recommend both her personal lessons and online sessions. Erica guided me through the Skype set up process and made the experience very clear and comfortable for me, as I’m quite unfamiliar with technology! Erica was able to share her screen with me on Skype so I could watch exactly what she was doing and take clear notes, in exactly the same way as if I was in the studio or in person. I will definitely be continuing my sessions with Erica online.
