Book your place in this Advanced Corsetry Class and learn how to make your own steel-boned genuine underbust corset. The focus of this class is to learn how to work with ‘fashion fabrics’ as well as a more in-depth look at refining corset fit overall. At the end of this corsetry course you’ll have a custom fitted corset (made with the fashion fabric of your choice) and personalised Vanyanís pattern to keep. You’ll gain the confidence, knowledge and inspiration to build on your success and make more corsets in different fabrics on your own. Receive expert guidance from an industry professional in a fun, warm environment. All shapes, sizes and ages (over 18) welcome!
