Training at SoHarlem:

Here at SoHarlem, there are many ways you can make use of the services we offer. We aim to build and train those interested in design work, whether it be sewing, tailoring, pattern making, et cetera. The path to training is straightforward: 

  1. Trainees

  2. Apprenticeship

  3. Designers in Residence

While these could be followed through step by step, our program is quite flexible and they can pause or stop at any point the trainee wishes. 

Furthermore, if you are already an established designer and would simply like to be a resident at SoHarlem, you can do just that by applying directly to the Designer In Resident program. Lastly, we have a very tight knit community of designers and supporters at SoHarlem that continuously help support products made by the local designers.
