For the FIRST TIME – Short Courses in Pattern-drafting

For the first time, CIAM Australia is offering short courses in pattern-drafting. You will use the CIAM method to construct a pattern block to your measurements and will then learn to manipulate it to form basic wearable styles. Different courses will be available for bodices, skirts etc.

These courses are ideal for people without the time to study the full CIAM certificate course or for HSC students wanting to draft their own pattern for their major work (extra classes will be available  to enable HSC students to adapt their pattern for more complex styles).

Fees: cost on application.
