About the Course
The fur coat remodelling course is for those who have a dated or old fur coat in the wardrobe that needs modernising. Based in Pembrokeshire with the only furrier in Wales, and one of a few left in the UK.
Over one weekend you will see your coat re-invented to fit you and your personal style, an essential item for winter. Whether it needs a new style of collar or just to be fitted to your own body, we will help with the design process to achieve what you want. You can even bring along your own fabric for the lining if you like!
As a part of the course you will learn and experience the following basic skills:
• Learning the "do's and don'ts" of fur
• Nailing out and cutting your coat
• Stitching on a traditional fur sewing machine
• Designing your own style garment
• Re-cutting the lining (if required)
• Introducing a new fastening or adding in traditional hooks and eyes
The course venue is at our home near Haverfordwest, a peaceful environment with views over rural Pembrokeshire. The one-on-one tuition allows for a relaxed atmosphere to learn and create in- and if we run out of time, we will always finish and post your coat back to you.
Please be aware that on the rare occasion where we are unable to make your coat into another coat for you (if it is too dry or damaged) this is no problem. Cushions, bags and accessories like headbands are always an option.
