PATTERN CUTTING (BEGINNER)
The Pattern Cutting (Beginner) course gives you a practical introduction to pattern construction, where you receive both theoretical and practical instruction. On this course, you will meet like-minded people who, like you, want to improve your skills, and you will receive a wide range of tools, methods and good advice along the way.
Construction of patterns is the link between the creative design and the physical shaping of models, and at the same time it’s the communication between design and production. The pattern cutting course conveys basic techniques and insight into the construction of basic patterns in interaction with creative design. Basic patterns for the skirt and top will be worked on. In addition, the course conveys knowledge of different variations.
Basic theory around model development will be reviewed, and you will make your own skirt and top basic form in paper and sewn up in fabric. Variations on the basic shape will be reviewed, and you will be given the opportunity to make a pattern according to your own design.
At the end of the course you will have an understanding of the following areas:
- Measures and measuring charts
- Pattern cutting of basic skirt shapes – sewing and adjustment
- Variations on skirts
- Cutting the basic shape of the upper part – sewing and adjustment
- Variations on top basic shapes
- Production patterns with seam allowances and markings
This course is for people who want to develop their creative skills. This applies, among other things:
- Creative people
- Students who want to refresh their design practice
There will be thorough and individual guidance for all students. You will receive a course certificate when you have completed the course, which you can use in connection with your CV or for future employers.
