About the tutor:

'I am passionate about fashion which includes designing, pattern making, the use of overlocker techniques, and dressmaking. I have been teaching for forty years and find my students are always enthusiastic about learning new skills.

Having completed my Fashion Certificate in honours grade I went to become a TAFE teacher of fashion after which I have been at SGSCC for 25 years. For a while, I also enjoyed specialising in bridal and evening clothes for individual people. Some of my creations have appeared in Studio Brides and Wedding Sydney Magazine.' Andi
