Service Description

On this two day workshop, held on August 16th and 17th, you will learn how to construct your own corset/boned bodice. Only basic sewing skills are needed to complete this introductory course and you will have your own bespoke corset to take home with you. The bodice can be used for many different purposes. It could be the foundation for an evening gown or even bridal wear, it could also be the base for a Steampunk or Cosplay costumed event. It could also simply be worn with a pair of jeans. All fabrics and equipment are included and you will work from a provided pattern block available in sizes XXS - XXL. The corsets are beautifully constructed using a layer of traditional cotton coutil, an interlining layer of calico and a top decorative fabric outer layer in your choice of cream or black. You may wish though to bring your own 1.2m of decorative fabric. This introductory corset has a front busk fastening and uses both steel supports and spiral bones to create the shape, fastening at the back with eyelets and a corset lace. The course is two days and the cost is £140. All fabrics, equipment and machinery are provided along with tea, coffee and refreshments. Please note :- All workshops are held on the second floor with access via the stairs Hand sanitiser will be provided throughout Tea, coffee and refreshments are provided
