Class Description

In this class we’ll explore skills and techniques needed for clothing construction and costume design. This class assumes you have some sewing experience and know the basics of using a sewing machine, this is not a beginner activity. Our project for this workshop will be to make an unboned corset. I’ll spend the first 15 minutes or so giving a brief introduction of our project and we’ll have time to chat and get to know each other. Then you can choose your fabric from my stock, and we’ll get going on our project! I’ll give step-by-step instructions along the way, and provide valuable tips and as you’re putting your corset together. When we’re done, if there is time, we can do a photo shoot of your finished product in my studio display area. Supplies: I encourage people to bring their own sewing machines, but if you don’t have one I will have 3 or 4 available. Please inform me if you need a machine when you sign up for the workshop. Also, if you have a favorite fabric that you’d like to work with, please feel free to bring it as well. I will provide all the other needed supplies and equipment. Participants will leave with primarily new skills, and a custom-made corset that they have created themselves. In addition this sort of activity fosters friendships and a unique "quilting circle" kind of comradery. We’ll have time for relaxing and socializing as well. Come join us and get inspired!
