Why not take a week off of work and learn a fabulous new skill.
This is an intensive one week pattern cutting workshop for beginners, that is run over 5 consecutive days from 9.30-3pm.
Come and learn the techniques of pattern making and cutting with tutor Maria Pulley.
*Construct a basic skirt, bodice, and sleeve pattern from your own body measurements
*Learn to manipulate patterns to create diverse styles and designs

(note: for this course you will be working in calico to make toiles. If you wish to realise your design using your own choice of fabrics, see COMPLETE DRESSMAKING FOR BEGINNERS)
* You will need a large lever arch file or similar for your notes and patterns, a pencil and a calculator for those tricky measurements.
