TR Pattern Cutting Taster Course

Course location: FTA, Unit 13, Crusader Estate, 167 Hermitage Road, N4 1LZ. 
Study level: Beginners – Advanced 
Price: £65 + VAT (Full payment of the course is required to reserve your place) 
Course length: 3 Hours

Description:

TR pattern cutting means Transformational Reconstruction, this is a form of origami pattern cutting which translates into immediate and intuitive 3D creations, in opposition to the more conventional way of drafting. The results are deliciously unexpected and totally exciting, with TR cutting you work directly onto the base shape and manipulate the style lines by building the shape and creating the look, this way you can see instantly how the piece will look. Working in conjunction with 2D pattern cutting you create a more couture form of interpretation.

We offer sessions lasting three hours on selected Saturdays with the following options:

- Morning session from 09.30 - 12.30
- Afternoon session from 13.30 - 16.30
