Shingo Sato TR: 3 day intensive. April 5-7th 2014

Transformational Reconstruction - one 3 day workshop


Based in Milan and Tokyo, working his magic around the globe, Shingo Sato is a great designer and teacher. We know by his work, he is capable of amazing concepts in cutting and design. This Australian workshop is a must for cutting edge designers in Australasia. We look forward with great excitement to seeing Shingo Sato at work. Traditional pattern making skills are not essential, but good basic sewing and sissor skills are a must.

1st day:

Short demo about TR concept, design & reconstruction on the half bodice and on the flared half skirt bodice.

2nd day:

TR draping on the bodice, Sleeve transfarmation.

3rd day:

Boxes integration, Origami technique on the bodice.

Good basic sewing and cutting skills are required. Do not book for this workshop if you are not confident in your cutting and sewing skills, basic straight sewing is fine, but you need to have some competence and confidence.

Shingo Sato will cut a bodice for each attendee from his own block.

Workshops cost $550.00. Limited to 14 people each workshop.

Times:Doors open for the workshop at 9.15am every day and commence at 9.45am sharp.

If you are coming from interstate, you need to bring your dress form and sewing machine, hire costs are $300 for both items, if your hire items are returned in perfect condition, you will receive a $100 refund. Any models with texta markings etc will not be refunded. Your sewing machine needs to be properly packed with all parts returned. In the past, we have had about 50% of our models returned with texta on them, and machines with feet missing etc. Therefore we have to increase the charges to cover the costs incurred by usage.
