Learn the basics of pattern drafting to make custom clothes that fit like a dream with patternmaker, Andrea Streefkerk.

Learn pattern drafting techniques to make a simple skirt pattern to your own measurements.

Andrea will teach you to interpret a commercial pattern and guide you through flat patternmaking methods including darts and the slash and open technique.

At the end of the workshop, you will have created a basic skirt block and completed a sample toile of your custom garment.

Held at Ballarat’s Australian Centre for Rare Arts and Forgotten Trades, a world-class facility dedicated to learning and preserving Australia’s rare arts and trades through a series of workshops, masterclasses, events, and residencies.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
