This jam-packed day will focus on the different methods of zero-waste cutting. You will learn a whole new set of shape-making skills for fashion design.
If you are more experienced, you will have the opportunity to push boundaries and develop these skills in unique ways.
We will work with half scale mannequins, traditional 2D block templates and geometric draping techniques before scaling patterns up to full size. Use one or more techniques to create your finished piece.
Monoprint for beginners
Don’t fear the blank page! Monoprinting and Monotype are simple, liberating and creatively serendipitous processes which enable you to make many exciting one-of-a-kind prints quickly.
Best exemplified in the work of Degas, Neale Worley, Elisabeth Peyton and Tracey Emin, monoprint and monotype for beginners will show you how to explore printmaking with and without a press.
On this one-day workshop course you’ll be able to try both approaches to really experiment and create many exciting prints to take away.
Slow Fashion: Make and Mend
Breathe new life into an old favourite, on this practical and highly creative course. You will learn how to re-imagine an item of clothing or a piece of textiles, using hand sewing, embroidery, appliqué and darning.
We’ll help you develop and pursue your vision with confidence, so you can create something that is highly personal, infused with memories, and deeply embedded in the honourable folk craft tradition of making do.
