Covid-19/Training courses update

Textile centre building is mostly closed for students until further notice. We are currently working on updating the information and advice for staff and students on how the centre will operate from September 2020. Once the update is completed, we will publish the information on this webpage and promote through our social media channels.

The machine based training will be delivered only when this is safe to do so and is required to complete your training course. We are happy to support and help out students through different ways to e-learning to keep their learning journey continue.

Information on how you can support the Centre of Excellence for Textiles.

We are very proud to support the Borders area by delivering much needed skills back into the local textile sector and improving access to skills and training in rural areas. However, our programme does rely on funding to continue to offer this level of support. We are up-cycling old clothes, towels and curtains to make dog coats, handbags, rabbits, cuddly toys and cut and sew projects. We can accept all kinds of textile donations such as woven and knitted fabrics, textile accessories & old handbags.
