Renowned for their wasp-waist shape and antique design, corsets are secretly beloved for their staying power. Learn the art in a cinch with today’s Groupon: £59 for a two day corset making class at Hackney Community College.
Elevating lofty Londoners with workshops and full-time courses, Hackney Community College keeps brainy sixth formers and adult learners busy at their buzzing Shoreditch campus. Cooking courses bubble away next to seamly fashion classes behind the college’s enterprising entrances, where youthful students mingle with working professionals brushing up on new skills. Higher education qualifications offered at the college range from from HNC/Ds to foundation degrees.
Taking a cue from Victorian fashions and modern high street influences, the two day corset making class will aim to give sartorial students the sewing skills necessary to create their own streamlined garment. The corsetiere will lead students through the theory and design of traditional lacy creations before giving hands-on practice at ‘easing’ curved seams and inserting boning. Following a late 19th-century pattern, students will then work on their own fitted corsets using the expert guidance and materials provided.
