We will be offering a number of one to one and group workshops for pattern cutting. These are aimed at anyone from the beginner to the experienced. It is impossible to learn pattern cutting quickly as It takes years of constant practice day in and day out to become proficient. While there are those who have an aptitude for making patterns, in my opinion it is an acquired skill rather than a raw natural ability.

We offer two types of either one or two day pattern cutting workshops :
The first is aimed at teaching you how to do it yourself. We will try to show you that really there are no rules. Or if there are, then once you know them you can just forget them. But many people trying to learn pattern cutting make the mistake of believing that they need to cut patterns to a formula. They buy books that tell them to make a pattern by joining the dots. This is a little bit like how tailors work, but they do not have the luxury of working on one standard size for every garment. They need a starting point that will give them a good representation of the specific figure they are dealing with. But ultimately they know that its what happens when it is on the body that counts.

The second is devoted to making a specific pattern for a style of your choice. we have many fashion startup entrepreneurs or designers who want to understand how the patterns are made, so like to get involved with the making of their own patterns. So in this case we work with them by going through their design ideas and we develop a good working drawing for the pattern cutter. Then we set about creating their pattern with them. Most patterns can be completed in a day, but some will require two days. In this case we have a two day workshop. This gives the client an opportunity to do some homework themselves. They can complete some of the work at home and bring it back for the second day.
