Catarina Sequeira is a Costume Designer from Spain who recently attended our Costume Making short course. We loved the photographs Catarina shared with us of the work she made; she said of the course, “I very much enjoyed the spirit of the class, working with people from different backgrounds but all of us wanting to learn as much as we can.

What did you enjoy most about your short course?

I very much enjoyed the spirit of the class, working with people from different backgrounds but all of us wanting to learn as much as we can. Also the process of making the clothes was really nice and the teacher helped us individually.
