Creative Making

About Suprya

I started drawing anything and everything from an early age and particularly remember drawing fashion designs ad dresses in all colours, with different effects. I was but as I got older, I found that the Arts and Textiles were not encouraged as the science and maths subjects were and I wanted to be recognised so when I went to see the careers advisor I told her I wanted to be a doctor. She seemed kind of taken aback, as she knew me, and my interests were in Art and Textiles. When I came back to see her and told her I wanted to be a interior designer, she seemed much more satisfied with that answer.

 

I started drawing anything and everything from an early age and particularly remember drawing fashion designs ad dresses in all colours, with different effects. I was but as I got older, I found that the Arts and Textiles were not encouraged as the science and maths subjects were and I wanted to be recognised so when I went to see the careers advisor I told her I wanted to be a doctor. She seemed kind of taken aback, as she knew me, and my interests were in Art and Textiles. When I came back to see her and told her I wanted to be a interior designer, she seemed much more satisfied with that answer.

So, I went on to do GCSE Art as well as textiles, but when it came to A-levels, I was not so bold. Choosing instead the science subjects with maths. By December however, I was so bored that I made the choice to go to Art college. I got in, with encouragement and tasks set for me weekly by the Art teacher at the school. I later went on to the London College of Fashion, which was a great experience, but the whole time I was there, I felt that I should be somewhere else. I just didn’t know what I wanted to do after I graduated, as it was a commercial course, most students were applying to work at high street firms like Debenhams, the prospect of which I was not excited by.

The reason I started Creative Making is because I wanted to provide a high level, fashion specific development of yours or your child’s talent. Schools can only do so much, and the strength of Creative Making courses is that the teaching is based on real life industry experience. It is not constricted by having to follow the curriculum, therefore there is no limit to what the students can achieve. I guide students from what they want to achieve, showing them the path and guiding them to achieving it.
