CIAM Pattern Making offers a complete course in pattern making as well as classes in specialised sewing techniques and garment construction.

Pattern Making

Our Pattern Making Classes are one of a kind where you learn from the beginning how to make patterns which produce beautifully and perfectly fitted garments.
We use the Guarino method, which uses specially graded rulers which cuts out calculation and guesses in patternmaking.

Sewing & Garment Construction

For those who feel that they need a little help with their sewing, we offer two kinds of sewing classes:

  • Sewing Techniques: On the last Saturday of every month, we offer a class which focuses on a particularly difficult sewing technique, for instance, collars.
  • Garment Construction: On rotating weekdays, we offer a class where you can bring in one of your current projects and our teacher will work through any problems you may be having.
