The Modern Maker Masterclasses in Brooklyn, NY
The masterclasses still have seats available. I know a lot has been going on. But right now, I only have one student per week signed up. I will still teach these classes, and the students will have my undivided attention. It would still be great to have more than one person per week. When there are more people in the classes, more questions get asked and a higher level of learning can be achieved.
Each class will take a trip to the NYC Garment district which I will personally lead. We will visit my favorite fabric stores and notions suppliers. By the end of the week you should have a completed (or nearly completed) wearable garment, all sewn by hand. Yes, it is possible. In the weeks where we are making patterns, each day, we will make a complete garment pattern, including lining patterns and variations with the goal that by the end of the week, you have a complete set of patterns that work together for a variety of ensembles. Most patterns will be made using The Modern Maker Vol. 2: Pattern Manual 1580-1640. There will be at least two patterns which did not appear in Vol. 2.
