Zero Waste Pattern Cutting

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Do you hate having loads of fabric left over and wonder what you’re ever going to do with it? Are you interested to see how sewing and sustainability can work in harmony together? Well this course is just for you!

During this 10 week course we will be learning the art of zero waste pattern cutting. The course is accompanied by the ‘Zero Waste Patterns’ book by Birgitta Helmersson. Birgitta is a Swedish-Australian designer and pattern maker. Everyone who attends the course will get their very own copy of Birgitta’s fascinating, informative book to keep.

This is a modern approach to sustainable sewing. Zero waste pattern cutting is a bit like a puzzle. Using a pre-determined length of fabric, you strategically plan your pattern pieces so that everything is used, then draw your pattern straight on to your fabric so no need for reams and reams of paper patterns. The book includes a scandi-style collection of 20 garments
