What you will do
2 hour class
Learning to pattern make a basic block to fit your measurements. There are two time lengths the 2 hour session will include time to make a fit toile from the paper block to confirm the size, the extra cost includes the cloth. Whereas the 1.5 hour session only includes the paper pattern. If you would prefer the 1.5 hour session on a 2 hour date, let me know and i will change the times at my soonest convenient time.
The fit block paper pattern can be manipulated into a shirt, dress or even a jacket for the more advance. If you would like further tuition on this let me know and we can arrange the details. Do bear in mind that the more advance the garment the longer it will take to complete with tuition, classes start from 4 hours at £58 and have a guideline of 2 classes minimum.

Pick the class you would like to work within and speak with us about your abilities. You are welcome to bring along cloth you have at home; it is better to use cloth rather than to store it and miss out on the time spent wearing it. Otherwise we do provide all that you need from sustainably sourced cloth to a vegetarian mezze lunch and all the equipment you may need.
