Event description


***********MAKE YOUR OWN BINDER WORKSHOP************


I am Prinx Lydia, I am a trans non-binary artist and professional who makes clothing for queers, for stage, screen and life. My focus is in non-binary fashion and I have a decade of experience working in the theatre industry as a costume maker, teacher and design innovator.

I am running a workshop for beginner stitchers to gain confidence in sewing and also to learn how to make your own binder. The variety of binders available is slowly getting better but how amazing would it be to be able to make your own!

In an easy and fun weekend, I will teach you how to make a basic binder that will be comfortable and safe to wear and you can recreate again and again with your new skills and take home kit.

THIS IS A TWO DAY COURSE!!! 24th AND 25th March - 11:00-14:30 each day

if you sign up for this workshop you are siging up for BOTH days.

I will take you from the beginning stages all the way through to the finishing off, you will learn:

- How to use a basic flat pattern

- Marking up and pinning

- Cutting and handling cloth

- Working with stretch vs non-stretch textiles

- Intro to using an overlocker

- Basic fitting techniques specific for binder wearers

(*This course does not cover pattern drafting, only how to use pre-made patterns.)

The class size will be very small with two people max. This will allow for my full attention to be given to you and for you to work at a speed that suits you best. You will have the use of a sewing machine to yourself but if you want to learn on yours you may pre-arrange to bring it with you. The classes will be held at my studio in Greenwich.


You will not need to bring anything to the class, apart from a notebook. If you would like to use your own equipment, I am happy for you to bring your own sewing kit: scissors, pins, fabric weights, tape measure, sewing machine... some people just like using their own stuff! I'll send a list! If you do not own any sewing equipment that is totally fine also, I will have everything you may need and you are welcome to use it!

The course will run over the weekend in TWO SESSIONS of three and a half hours each day. It is mandatory that you can attend both sessions otherwise you will not complete the full class and not finish your binder. Due to the nature of this course if you miss a session or day I cannot reschedule into a future session and I cannot refund class fees.

I will be running more classes in future, across the UK, so please get in touch if you are interested and I will make sure you will be the first to hear about future events. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm thus far!


The full cost of this course is £120 and this includes:



ALL MATERIALS (to be used in class)


PAPER PATTERN (to take with you)


This course is excellent value for money as you get all the skills, plus the paper pattern to take away with you and to re-make this binder as many times as you wish, in any colour/print imaginable.
