Pockets Galore!! Plan, Make & Add Pockets to Things!!!
June 1 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm£20 – £60
THE DATE OF THIS COURSE HAS BEEN CHANGED. THIS IS THE CORRECT DATE, PLEASE IGNORE ANY OTHER DATE YOU MAY HAVE SEEN ELSEWHERE. THANK YOU.
I have decided that this years mission is to add pockets to everything I make at the workshop!! And I’ve also decided to spread the pocket love around!!
On this course I shall teach you how to make various different pockets, handy enough to know should they already be included in a pattern, but I shall also teach you how to add them to a pattern. I will show you how to add in seam pockets or patch pockets to an already constructed garment. With an in seam pocket this will mean some unpicking.
What we will cover:
What is a patch pocket, a welted pocket and an in seam pocket? How to make one, what do you need to know about them prior to making them? We will make practice pieces of all 3 so that you have practical experience of making them.
How to add the above pockets to a garment at the pattern stage. Where to add them. How to accurately place them and mark them out.
Adding an in seam or patch pocket to an already constructed garment. I will talk you through this and time permitting you can then do this in the class. Please bring a garment that you wish to add pockets to.
An endlessly useful class and 2 fingers up to the patriarchy at the same time. We’ll add our own pockets thank you very much!!
