About the Course

This is the ultimate workshop!

If you would like to attend Craig's brand spanking new tailoring workshop, you will learn all the techniques from beginning to end.

You will hear about the best places in London to find fabrics and will be introduced to the spectacular unknown fabric treasure troves of London.

You will choose your own jacket pattern to work from and choose your own fabrics, linings and buttons.

Day 1: Pattern preparation / Cutting out / Pockets
Day 2: Collars / sleeves
