Learn the basics of classic corset making in a 3 week course!
The techniques you learn in this class can be easily adapted to your requirements.
You will work from an easy to use paper pattern and each week I will walk you step by step through the process.
You will learn about fabrics and tools needed for corsetmaking and all the steps to produce your own corset:
- how to choose the right size
- create a mockup
- make adjustments to the paper pattern
- cut your fabrics
- set in a busk
- make up and finish your stays
- design modifications
- different sewing & finishing techniques
The class will be taught LIVE in three weekly two-hours lessons (=6 hours), where I will demonstrate in real time everything you need to know!
You will receive an assignment at the end of each class to prepare over the week.
You will of course have the opportunity to ask questions during class, which I will answer live, plus each course member gets 30 minutes 1-on-1 support from me in a Skype session!
You will be required to purchase your materials and pattern separately, however I have a special package deal from Neheleniapatterns.com for you, which includes everything!
If you want to provide your own materials instead of the recommended package that is also possible.
The pattern used in this class is the "Ladies Victorian Corset" by Laughing Moon Patterns. Please purchase your PDF copy of the pattern straight from the manufacturer (or purchase the package deal mentioned above)!
Please note this is not for you if you are totally new to sewing, as advanced sewing skills are required!
Places are strictly limited to ensure best personal support.
or alternatively you will receive the full list of required materials plus links to UK and US based suppliers emailed to you when you purchase the class!
This class will only take place if the minimum number of bookings is met! Minimum: 2
A recording will be available after each lesson to review course contents, or for those who couldn't attend live.
Class will be taught in English.
The course will be live on ZOOM. The required software is available to download free at zoom.us
