Learn, Draft and Start Designing
Our online workshops are specific to teaching and creating block patterns using The Pattern Drafter.
The Pattern Drafter creates all your block patterns custom fitted to your measurements. Our online workshops take you step by step through everything from measuring correctly, drafting your block patterns, preparing and fitting a calico garment, making tailored adjustments to your blocks based on your fitting, to create your final master block patterns. We also include a design section on basics of design beyond the blocks so you can get started designing and sewing clothes that actually fit!
Presented as a series of easy to follow video tutorials per workshop. Once you enrol and purchase an online workshop, you can login and learn at your own pace in your own space. And watch parts or all of it over again as many times as you like, anytime you like. A very handy resource to take your time with and come back to when needed which is not available with in-person workshops.
Why do a workshop? So you can understand and use The Pattern Drafter with confidence and get the most out of this incredibly powerful tool that will make your drafting experience so much simpler.
The online workshops can only be completed if you purchase or own The Pattern Drafter ruler, as all blocks are created using this ruler.
No drafting experience is necessary. Anyone can learn.
We are constantly updating, adding and changing our content to improve the techniques and skills that are taught in these workshops. Any future updates to workshops are no extra cost and will be automatically available.
