Design & Produce Garment Patterns
Our courses offer step by step instructions in pattern cutting and are suitable for beginners just starting out as well as those who may already have experience of pattern cutting at a more advanced level. Courses are designed to teach you all the technical skills and knowledge that you require to be able to design and create your very own garment patterns using the flat pattern cutting method.
During the course, you will work your way through a range of exercises that are designed and delivered in a user-friendly format with each exercise building on the previous or your existing knowledge. As your skill levels increase and grow so will your confidence.
Courses are taught by experienced tutors and fashion industry experts who will cater and adapt to your personal learning style, provide clear and easy to follow instructions alongside demonstrations taking you through the experiential learning cycle. Classes are relaxed, welcoming and small in size creating and enjoyable environment with plenty of support, guidance and help available.
No prior pattern cutting knowledge is required and as there is no sewing involved in the pattern cutting courses, except when creating mock-ups, no previous sewing experience is needed and you do not need to know how to use a sewing machine.
Please see our full range of fashion sewing courses to get you get started with creating and producing garments using the design skills and your pattern cutting knowledge from this course.
The pattern cutting courses will use size 12 blocks as a basis for the exercises. If students have their own blocks, these may be used. If you are interested in making custom fit blocks, please see our block making courses.
