"As a former Falmouth student myself, I know first-hand that the course develops core skills such as pattern cutting and construction, as well as more technical and unique abilities. These are all skills which are successfully displayed by our Falmouth interns. Above all, their positive attitude and passion sets them apart and leads them to make the most of every opportunity."
