This specialist weekend workshop is aimed at those who want to create a bespoke corset to their own design and shape. Working under the expert guidance of our specialist corsetry and lingerie tutor Lou Watson, you will draft a pattern to a design of your choice that fits your size and shape. Having completed the pattern, you will then create a calico ‘toile’ as a basis for all future corset creations.
All drafting materials and calico will be included in the cost of the weekend course along with a tasty lunch on both days. This workshop is ideal for those interested in costume creation or wanting to develop their skills for bridal design. A 20% discount is available to those who book both this course and the corset creation weekend.
Lou Watson’s love of lingerie and corsetry culminated in her obtaining a degree in ‘Contour fashion’ from De Montfort University. Since then, she’s continued to specialize in designing and creating lingerie and corsetry by developing ideas as well as creating patterns and samples for a number of specialist businesses such as ‘Kiss Me Deadly’, ‘IA Technical’, ‘Little Women Fashion’ and ‘Edge O Beyond’. Her degree final collection, ‘Persephone’ was showcased at Earls Court in London as part of the Graduate Fashion week and in 2014 she was selected as a finalist for the ‘Young Designer of the Year’ award.
