View the video recording of this session below

SAT 28 NOV 2020 2:30-4pm




How do clothing designers transform their ideas into realities? In this practical workshop, led by Turf studio member Theresa Dodzro, learn about pattern cutting tools and techniques. We will look at methods of measuring our bodies to get the best clothing fit, and will create our own patterns for making a skirt.

Sign up by Monday 23rd November to be sent a pack of materials you will need for the workshop. This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is necessary, as spaces are limited. It will take place online via Zoom. Once you have booked, you will be sent the link to join the workshop closer to the time.

Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice.
