Couture Finishes is a one day workshop for all abilities. You will leave this one day workshop with a lifetime of knowledge and a guarantee you will never make hand made clothes with a home-made finish again! Samples will be made of a zip placement that cannot go wrong, immediately cure the problem of spreading at the top of the zip and one side being shorter than the other. Tailored hems, no stitches to be seen. The bound buttonhole, totally created by hand, beautiful smooth tailored darts, Hong Kong finishing and tiny silk covered press studs, plus canvases that create perfectly symmetrical everyday collars and cuffs through to wickedly pointed Dior cuffs. This workshop contains vital information for beginners to professionals. A couture collection that can be used in everyday clothes.
All course materials are included in the price for this course.
Our workshops are run from our workroom above the English Couture Company shop in the beautiful village of Syston in Leicestershire. The room is light & airy & will take up to 8 students. We have Janome Memory craft 6600 machine for all our students. This means you don’t have to bring your machine with you. There are also overlockers available if needed. We have a good supply of the basic sewing equipment for you to use on the course.
There is always tea, coffee & biscuits provided at any time during the day. You will have to provide your own lunch. There are shops near to the studio where you can buy lunch or Ann, our friendly sandwich maker will deliver freshly made food which you can order when you get here. You can bring a packed lunch as an alternative.
The shop is available for students to buy anything they need for their projects during the day. You are very welcome to shop after the course finishes.
All our full day courses start at 10am & finish at around 4pm. Due to the comprehensive knowledge & personalised tuition operated throughout all the workshops, they can sometimes over run.
