Bespoke Trouser Making

This intensive trouser making course will not be nearly as stressful as the jacket as you will have time to do a “test run” on a few details before doing it on the finished garment.


The first pair can always seem a bit tedious as there’s lots to do and it may feel like there isn’t enough time, but you can expect to complete it all within the two weeks, even if it might not look how you imagined.


Evenings will be long with a lot of skills to develop and this is a great course to hone your skills and enjoy your work production.


You will be expected to put in at least two hours of your own time each evening after classes
