Fabulous Fabrics and Tantalising Trimmings

Yes, dear Duffy, our very persuasive show organiser, has talked me into doing it again. You don't dare say no to Duffy!

A private bus will take us into Mahattan and we'll get to shop in the best stores in the garment district, meet the wonderful and knowlegable owners and even get to have lunch (at your expense) before the bus whisks us back to show off all the goodies.

This tour is very popular and has a limited number of students so don't hestitate, go to click on the Show Page and get ready to walk into heaven.


Yet again we're going to have fun in Denmark, let's just hope my students remember that the best way of getting good marks and get all my attention is to go and get me a regular supply of the wonderful Danish Pastries from the baker.

Here's what I'm teaching this year.

For the first three days I'll be showing how to sculpt in half scale with the added bonus of me directing you to costume. It's restricted to the Medieval Period this year but I hope to do The Tudor Period next year.

It's going to be great fun with new techniques to learn, plus, if students find this scale natural to them, I'll have special things to teach.

Then, for the two day class I'll be teaching

Men's Tailoring

The well tailored jacket, with shirt front, tie and waistcoat. And of course matching trousers.

This will be dressed on a tailoring stand but all the skills taught will be useful for tailoring for your own figures.

Yes the website is in English and, since most of the students speak it perfectly you'll not have any problems with understanding and being understood.

Also teaching there will be Jens Torp - in shorts! - Philippa Todd, Bill Robertson, Ursula Dyrbye-skovsted, and Bjarne Kelde.

It's a fabulous setting with private rooms, en suite. Fantastic food and very friendly atmosphere.
