Creative Pattern Cutting
Tuesday Afternoons | 14.00-17.00 | £210 | 10 weeks
Our current Pattern Cutting course is called Creative Pattern Cutting; this course will give you the foundation skills for learning how to make garment patterns for woven fabrics from your own body measurements. You will create basic blocks/shapes that can be manipulated into endless designs.
Every term we will focus on a different block so that new and returning learners will be able to learn new skills and expand their wardrobe.
The first half of the Autumn Term will begin with a skirt block. Participants will be able to work at their own pace during class however some sewing or catching up may be required at home to get the most out of class time. Subject to progress in the first half of the term the second half of the term will focus on a bodice block.
Returning learners are invited to work on new projects in agreement with the tutor. These could be variations based on skirt and bodice blocks, new blocks or even taking patterns off existing clothes.
It is strongly recommended that beginner pattern cutters attend the first session.
This course runs for three terms every year, each term consists of 10 Thursday evening classes. We take a break over half term.
Prior experience of sewing is required for this course. We also recommend Jacquie’s Sewcialising class that follows this one where you can learn additional skills that will help you to become more confident in pattern cutting and sewing garments.
