5 Hour Intro to Pattern Cutting for Handbags £80
1 Day Pattern Cutting Course
This is a really good introduction to pattern cutting course. The course is aimed at students who would like to learn the basics about pattern cutting for handbags.
You will have to bring your design inspiration and we will be able to teach you how to work out the dimensions and proportions of the bag taking your two dimensional picture and turning into a three dimensional form.
The design will be reasonably simple as this is a introduction to anyone wanting to learn the basics about pattern cutting for handbags. If you'd like to design a more advanced bag we recommend doing the 3 or 4 day advanced course which includes a more in depth learning into pattern cutting and construction
You will be taught how to use the tools for pattern cutting, adding the correct seam allowance, making patterns for fusing and lining. Mock-ups of the pattern will be tested in card to test and any alterations will be made to the original pattern.
This is an ideal predecessor the "Two day intermediate leather handbag making course" During the 2-day leather handbag making course you normally use our pre-prepared patterns, however, if you attend this "5 hour intro to pattern cutting course" you will be able to make this design during the 2 day course.
What To Bring
All materials are provided by us, we will be using card to make your pattern so it is very robust and will last for a long time even when you use it regularly.
We will have a half an hour lunch break together so please bring lunch and snacks. Before Covid 19 I used to provide lunch and snacks but for now I have been advised for people to bring their own, which I am sad about as I loved providing this. Coffee / tea will also be provided but if you would rather bring your own then, of course, are more than welcome.
