Pattern Cutting Introduction - Tutor tbc
Part time course
About the Course:
Ever wondered how clothes are made? Have you wanted to make your own clothes but been stuck at the pattern stage? Then fear not! This introductory course will take you through step by step the methods in which to create and alter your own patterns and to make garments using your patterns.
What will I learn?
You will be able to create your own pattern blocks, and be taught the various techniques to draft patterns and to adapt them to create patterns for your own designs. You will then be able to use your patterns to make a garment with help and support from tutors to improve your sewing skills. You will get one to one help with sewing skills from inserting a sleeve or zip to more complicated details such as welt pockets and fly front zips.
How will the course be delivered?
The sessions are 2 ½ hours one evening a week.
How will I know how I am doing?
You will get one to one feedback from the tutor every week. The class is limited to a maximum of eight so everyone can get individual help and advice from the tutor.
Do I need any experience?
No. Beginners are very welcome. This course is suited to all levels of experience.
What do I need to bring to my first class?
A folder or document wallet is useful to keep handouts in. You may want to bring some paper to take notes during demonstrations. If you want to make garments for someone else, bring their measurements.
