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.
The session is led by TR pattern super master Claudette Joseph, educating learners about the revolutionary technical functions of TR Pattern Cutting and the processes of creating 3D origami!
Feedback from Claudette’s previous taster course included:
“It was an informative and inspirational introduction to TR cutting. I found Claudette’s style of teaching very clear and easy to follow, I really appreciated seeing all of Claudette’s samples. It was an exciting and clear overview of the processes of TR cutting, I learnt how to make a basic origami bodice block.” Barley
“I have learnt from the course that TR pattern cutting isn’t as daunting as I thought it would be, but rather very achievable to create. I am definitely interested in joining when the next date for the course is delivered.” Aimee
