Workshop: Professional Finishing Techniques (Short Course)

How a garment is put together can make a huge difference to the overall finished look of it. Just because your garment is hand-made, it doesn’t mean that is how it has to look!

This workshop will look at just a few of the techniques needed to help give your garment a professional quality. These include sewing knitted pieces together and picking up stitches, both of which can be fundamental to a garment’s finish. Fully fashioning shaping and buttonholes are also looked at during this short course.
