Our popular TR Pattern Cutting taster class with the ‘Queen of seams’ Claudette Joseph is back with another instalment on Saturday 9th May 2020 at the Fashion Technology Academy.
The three-hour session introduces learners to the TR pattern cutting technique, which 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.
