We offer basic, intermediate and advance pattern making courses. These courses will teach you all the fundamentals and advance techniques to help you master pattern making. Upon completion of any level course, you will receive a certificate.
Pattern Making Courses
We start teaching you at the Basic or Introductory Level of Pattern Making. Anyone can learn pattern making! And it is an important part of the skills you need to be able to make your own clothes.
Pattern making skills means that you can adjust an existing pattern, so as to make clothes that fits perfectly. And eventually it leads you to creating your own, personal patterns.
All our courses are part-time. You do one class per week. And the class is two hours long. That means you can finish a short course in as little as six weeks.
Some of our students are working adults, so we offer Saturday classes to accommodate them.
Our courses are very practical. We teach you one-on-one and step-by-step. In the pattern making class there are usually no more than four students. So you get the personal help and attention you need.
We recommend that you at least complete our Absolute Beginners level 1 Sewing course, before attempting Pattern Making.
Our classes are for adults, so we assume you can understand the study materials, and follow along in class. We encourage lots of questions and lots of interaction!
Is this course for you?
If you want to make your own clothes, you need to learn both Sewing as well as Pattern Making. You can use this to make clothes for yourself. And you can also use this to start you own small business!
These courses are skills courses and very practical. As such, there are no accreditation available for these courses. If you need an accredited year-long, or two- or three-year course, then this course is not for you.
Short Courses in Pattern Making
We offer two short courses in pattern making, as follows:
You can combine these two courses to build up to the Pattern Making Certificate course.
When you combine the Pattern Making courses with our Sewing courses, they build up to the Comprehensive Clothing Design Certificate.
