Introduction to Making Latex Clothes Short Course

Nick Jones work on models and mannequins
College
Central Saint Martins

In this 5 day course students will learn many new skills involved in the making of Latex clothes and utilise them in creating their own latex garments. The course will be taught by Nick Jones – a well-known designer & manufacturer in the industry with 17 years’ experience.

Course description

The first two days you will learn the techniques involved in the making of a simple latex garment. The latter part of the week will involve a very exciting challenge as the students must bring with them a fabric garment they wish to re-create in a heavier grade of Latex. This would be more outer wear garments such as Jeans/Trousers, Jackets, Coats, and Hoodies etc.

The garment can have any pockets, a collar, fastenings, zips, elastic etc. The colour of Latex provided for this will be black. Also, fastenings such as press studs, rivets & eyelets will be provided and zips used in most Latex garments, but again, if any specific zip or fastening is required students must provide these themselves.

This will be an intensive but very enjoyable course giving students the chance to learn many new skills and directly apply them to making at least 2 garments by the end of the week.

Entry requirements: This is a beginners course but previous experience in making clothes would be an advantage.

Level: All levels.
