Where to start?
Browse through categories, classes and tutors, choose one of our many Disciplines. We tell beginners exactly what lessons they should watch first.
We put a lot of effort into making our lessons easy-to-follow
Our video lessons explain how to do everything yourself, step-by-step. If you mess up something, don't worry! Just rewind the lesson a little bit and start again (You can't do that at a traditional school!)
Clearly visible and understandable demonstrations
Our lessons are professionally produced in a large, well-lit studio using professional videographers and sound technicians operating high quality camera, lighting and recording equipment. All of our lessons are taught from the designer’s perspective, i.e. looking down at your work as you would when creating something, yourself. This is a much better way to learn than watching a demonstration in front of you, where you can only see what the teacher is doing from a backwards or “flipped” perspective.
Hear what our teachers are saying, clearly
All of our lessons are produced with a separate voice-over track timed to exactly correspond to a teacher's actions on-screen. You can always hear and understand every single step in a Tailorgang lesson. No long, boring pauses. No mistakes. No do-overs.
Many useful "extras"
Many of our lessons include helpful graphics and downloadable files to help you understand key concepts, make tricky calculations or customize your project for different sized models.
