Event description

Description

Do you love handbags and accessories, and harbour dreams of designing your own collections? This inspiring and fast-paced course is for you! We will show you how to turn your ideas into original designs that express your signature style.

Discover how to define the elements that go to make up your unique vision. Practise methods of origination and presentation, understand the importance of range-planning, colour stories and collection building, and learn how to transform a vision into a resolved pattern. Along the way, we will discuss how to communicate with manufacturers and construct a ‘specification sheet’ for each design.

Day One - Inspiration and Communication.

  • Explore shape, colour and narrative to find the keys to expressing your individual design style
  • Create drawings, paper models, story boards and mini-presentations
  • Choose an original concept (or small range) to develop further

Day Two - Patterns, mock-ups and toile-making.

  • Test your idea in 3D to resolve volume and proportion
  • Begin to look at construction methods and technical markings
  • Produce a resolved pattern ready to make up into a calico toile or prototype

This course is open to beginners as well as improvers who want to take their ideas to the next level. Whether you are thinking of, or in the early stages of launching a brand, or just love the creative process of designing for your own satisfaction, this course offers the opportunity to gain valuable feedback and encouragement, as well as insider-information on how to take things to the next stage.

MATERIALS AND RESOURCES

Pattern-making materials to the value of £20.00 are included in the price of this course. A full information pack with details of essential tools, equipment and suppliers will be provided, and we will discuss how to source materials, and the options for making and manufacture.
