Cupped Corset Workshop

Cupped Corset Workshop


Learn how to translate a standard corset pattern into a cupped corset toile, with techniques on creating your final corset in this 2 day class suitable for intermediate to advanced makers. Materials supplied by Sew Curvy

For only the 2nd time in Glasgow I'll be teaching cupped corsetry. Previously only available in Oxford where I've taught at the Sew Curvy studio. A rare class to find and places are limited due to the intensive nature of the two days.

  • You will create a basic mock-up from supplied Sew Curvy pattern & materials sent to you prior to the class.

  • Learn about bust fit and where cupped corsets go wrong

  • Discuss various types of cups and how they work with differing breast shapes

  • Learn about other corset bust shaping methods.

  • Transform your mock-up into a cupped pattern

  • Create and fit your cupped mock-up

  • Study materials and chat about fit and construction options.

  • Leave with the skills to create a fully finished cupped corset

Students should have some experience in basic corsetry and sewing.

Add To Cart

WE'll be holding the class in the Trades Hall, which is a glorious 18th century Adam building, and is the oldest non religious building in the city still used for its original purpose. Situated ion Glassford street.

Convenient for public transport and all city centre facilities. We also have discounted car parking at the multi-storey across the road. Exit passes are provided by the venue.

More info and a map on their website, here

The room is on the top floor and is modern, bright and private. You can leave your belongings, machine etc, there overnight as the building is very secure. There is also a lift and the staff are very helpful.

The class will run from 09:30 until 16:30 on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th August.

I would appreciate if you could bring your own machine if possible. I do have one machine to lend out, and can source others. Let me know on the booking form if you need use of one.

There are  lots of nearby cafes and restaurants for lunch. We can go as a group, or of course you may bring sandwiches or do your own thing if you prefer.

What you will need:

The core materials are provided and sent out to you in advance so you can prepare your mock up (don’t worry if you get stuck, email me and I can help or we can finish it at the class). I’d appreciate you bringing your machine if you can. But if you have an industrial or are away from home then let me know and I can arrange a limited number of machines. Other than that, all you will need to bring is your basic sewing kit. So, thread, scissors for both paper and fabric,  hand sewing needles, pins and marking materials. Also a pen or pencil and notepad.

I’ll be bringing specialist tools with me. I am discussing designing a kit with Julia at Sew Curvy with some basic relevant tools. If we get that sorted out soon I will send out a mail letting you know.

The most important thing you can bring is your enthusiasm :)

Class numbers are limited to a maximum of 5 for the best learning  experience.
