Stage Two:

Due to Covid19, we will be holding Application Appointments on either a one-to-one or small group basis as and when restrictions allow. 

Please allow about an hour for these informal interviews where you will learn a little more about EKA, tell us about yourself and ask any questions you have. 

This appointment will include a short sewing skills test - please allow 90 minutes for stage two of the process.

Stage Three:

We will then reach out to you based on stage two, to discuss offering you a place on the course! At this point deposit and payment plans will be discussed with you privately in more details. The deposit for the Full Course will then be required to secure your acceptance of your place.

If you have any questions at all about the courses, what's involved, anything at all,

please don't hesitate to get in touch
