Creative Pattern Cutting for Beginners – 2D to 3D: Exploring Your Own Designs

Ref: C3680290

This course is designed to be interactive and for you to complete your work in the sessions. Using a body template, let your creative juices flow to design your own fashion! You will explore pattern techniques that link with your designs. You can design any garment you like such as trousers, tops, jackets or dresses. Let your imagination go and we will bring your 2D design to a 3D realisation. There will be demonstrations for the group and for individuals. You will get tutor support and encouragement throughout your course and you can use the time to create as many designs as you want. You can work at your own pace and record your processes and techniques with photographs and annotations on a Padlet board. You can work in half-scale or full-scale patterns to experiment with your designs, and you will produce a full-scale pattern to toile up and fit.
