With winter fast approaching, why not take advantage of our cosy studio and learn how to create your own custom patchwork jacket.

During the course of 10 weeks our skilled seamstress will guide you through the entire design process, starting with measuring and creating your own sleeve and bodice block pattern. You'll learn the importance of accurate measurements and how to create a well-fitted pattern.

We will then customize your block patterns and draft your first jacket toile. During this stage, you'll learn how to make necessary adjustments to your pattern to achieve your desired fit.

You'll learn about the different types of patchwork fabric and how to select the best one for your project. We will also cover the basics of patchwork and quilting fundamentals, including how to sew and cut your patchwork pieces.

Finally, we will sew and cut the toile pieces in preparation for garment creation. This is where the magic happens, and you'll see your custom patchwork jacket come to life. By the end of the term, you'll have a unique, one-of-a-kind jacket that you can wear with pride.
