TEACHER

Anna Ng


OVERVIEW

During this masterclass you gain an understanding about working with boiled wool, ponte, scuba or neoprene while sewing an unlined jacket.  Please note the Sydney jacket can only be made in fabrics that don’t fray as the edges are left raw.  That’s right… no hemming!

Anna will guide you through working with overlapped seams, fitting together unusually shaped pattern pieces and the benefits of hand basting shifty shoulder darts.  Students will work at their own pace and Anna will provide targeted teaching moments as required. 


COST

$185

This price includes entry to the entire Soul Craft Festival for the day of the masterclass.


TAKEAWAY

Participants will go home with a new stylish jacket and a great sense of achievement.
