Testimonials

I signed up for a week's course with OG Training in sublimation, vinyl/flock transfer.
My reason for wanting to do the course was that I already knew how to do sublimations working with ceramics i.e cups, but I needed to learn the techniques of printing on to clothing, ie T-shirts. I didn't have a lot of time available to myself so learning the course over a week was intensive training was ideal for me.Over the course of the week not only did I learn what I had signed up on the course to do but I was also given introductions (very helpful and detailed instructions) in photoshop applications, illustrator applications and inkscape.
I can honestly say that everyone at O.G Training are friendly and extremely helpful, going out of their way to make sure you understand what you are doing with the training/applications. The atmosphere at OG is absolutely brilliant, I felt immediately at home there and was sad the week came to an end so quickly.
I would definitely recommend OG Training to anyone.

“I visited the OG Clothing Company and saw at first hand some of the work being done with young people, teaching them useful skills which can lead to accreditation with the prospect of being able to then obtain employment. I felt that the projects were of real help to some disadvantaged young people.”
Neil Gerrard Ex MP for Walthamstow 

“I am writing in reference to the above company based in Wood Street and how it has had a positive impact on the New Deal clients based at Seetec. I had a meeting with Abid Aslam 2 months ago in relation to work placements for the Walthamstow branch of Seetec and how he could help in train and give the clients valuable experience in the field of Graphic Design and Print. Abid was very helpful and informative and I was very impressed with the setup.”

“The half term T-shirt workshop - Feb 2009 was a success. The group produced amazing original T-Shirts. The participants showed what great talent they have in terms of creativity, team building, originality & above all a commitment to the project.
The young people had thoroughly enjoyed the time that they had spent with your team producing and receiving advise on business”.

"The young people and I were welcomed warmly and given a real passionate insight into the background of O.G clothing and the good work they do. 
Great teamwork amongst the O.G clothing team, with all the paperwork and Health and safety procedures made very clear to us in an orderly manner.
The atmosphere was friendly and the workshop was lively with a great tutor who inspired the young people to be more creative. The young people also felt encouraged to follow their dreams in terms of creating their own clothing or brand. Results were great and from the young people I’ve heard them say they want to go back to do more workshops. So well done O.G clothing team it is definitely a service I would use again or recommend, their ethos itself is very inspiring".

"I would like to thank you and your team at O.G. Clothing Co.  for delivering a very worthwhile project over the Easter break. The twelve young people who attended were from The Avenue and Cathall Estates and all of them thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
It is these kinds of positive activities with entrepreneurial opportunities for young people to explore, which can help young people breakaway from negative influences. We were really impressed with the way you offered our young people chances to explore setting up a small clothing business for themselves.
The young people learnt a lot from designing to printing and the prospect of actually making money in a legal professional way. We at Catch22 Waltham Forest look forward to working with you again in the very near future." 
- Ahmed Hussain, Project Worker, Waltham Forest Gangs Diversionary Project, Catch22

"OG Clothing has provided my child with an excellent opportunity in design. After three months of extensive training in T-Shirt design, heat press and screen transfer, she is now confident in her use of these skills as well as Adobe Photoshop.  These skills are transferable and can boost her resume for future reference. Since joining, my child has received a certificate, and is considering going on to do an ASDAN course. This was possible through the excellent guidance of the instructors at OG clothing, who nurtured her love of Design and made it a reality. The staff is exceptional in their delivery of skills and has also made a tremendous impact on her. O.G clothing is very good facility  and without doubt such an organisation can have a positive and far reaching impact within the community if it continues to open its doors to the public. 

As a satisfied parent, I recommend without reservation OG clothing as company that excels in building confidence and teaching marketable skills to young people.

Yours Sincerely
Leroy Rowe (Parent of Alexia Rowe)
