Basque and bodice design workshop



This full-day workshop will have you designing and making a beautiful life-size basque using card, extravagent paper, braids, jewels, lace and much more in a workshop filled with glitz and glamour.

It doesn't matter whether you're an accomplished artist or whether you've never even touched a paintbrush, because your experienced tutor will guide you every step of the way as you transform your cardboard template into a breathtaking work of art. Experiment with striking styles and vibrant colours, from luxurious velvet panels to dainty lace frills, sparkly jewellery to bold buttons, glossy ribbons to silky satin.

You could make a sultry boudoir basque, a vintage Victorian corset or a glittery Disney princess bodice. Draw inspiration from your favourite films, TV series and literature, from Game of Thrones to The Great Gatsby, Les Misérables to Moulin Rouge! The choice is yours and the only limit is your imagination.

You will be provided with full tuition and reference material, and will be guided through fashion drawing techniques to discover your inner fashion designer.

Whether you come in a group, with a friend or on your own, you'll create treasured memories to last a lifetime and a lovely piece to display in your home or give as a gift.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
