Corset Workshop with Karen of the Stitching Witch

2 Day Corset Workshop with Karen
Learn the secrets of the Victorian Corsetiere.
Forget the corset your Great-Granny wore; corsets are now high-fashion, sought-after garments which will give you fabulous posture and an instant two inches off your waist! Traditional techniques, materials and patterns as pioneered in the 1800s are still as relevant for today’s contemporary fashion.
This informative two-day course will take you from adapting a pattern through making boning channels right up to how to lace your finished corset properly. You will need competent sewing skills for this course.
All materials to make a basic corset, including a traditional two-piece busk and metal boning, are included in the cost of the course.
