Super exciting news!
I’m going to be in Melbourne (for the first time ever) the first week of April, and…
(super, super exciting news)
I’ll be teaching a corset making workshop at Melbourne’s fabulous craft lounge, Thread Den on Friday the 6th of April!
How exciting is that! (Especially if you are in Melbourne).
It’s an all-day workshop, so we’ll have plenty of time for each student to make an entire corset, learn some corset history, work through all the techniques, discuss the different materials available, look at some of my corsets, get to know each other, and generally have a fabulous time.
The workshop will be based around this corset:
It’s a simple, flattering underbust corset that can easily be fitted to a huge range of shapes, and that can be adapted to a lot of styles. Once you have mastered this corset it is easy to add cording, piping, quilting, and to use all the same techniques to make an overbust corset.
The price is Au$200 – $175 for the workshop, + $25 for the materials kit (your pattern, busk, boning, grommets and lacing). This is a really fabulous deal for a full day workshop, and for all the materials.
Spaces are very limited – only 9 students – because I want to make sure that I can give each of you lots of personal attention so that you go away from this feeling very confident about making lots and lots of your own corsets. This does mean that its very important that you book right away, before the class fills up.
I’m really thrilled about doing this: I love teaching, Thread Den is such a fabulous space (I follow their blog over the internet and drool), and corset making is so fun!
Will I be seeing you there? Hope so!
