Introduction to Making Latex Clothes Weekend
In this 2 day course students will learn the basic techniques involved in the making latex clothes and will be taught by Nick Jones – a well-known designer & manufacturer in the industry with 17 years’ experience.
The aim of the course is that students will be able to grasp the techniques of tracing the pattern and cutting the garment to applying the glue, bonding the seams and leave the course with a simple garment they have made. This could be a pencil skirt, a crop top or a dress and for men, a t shirt, a vest, a t-shirt or a pair of shorts.
Depending on students’ ability, further techniques could also be learnt, such as hemming, adding trims, edging & applique and inserting zips.
Entry requirements: This is a beginner’s course but obviously any previous experience in making clothes would be an advantage.
Level: All levels.
There is also a weeklong version of this course here.
Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
