My master craftsman of tailoring class: day 1


sorry I kept you waiting, but here is finally my report of my first day in master craftsman class:

The class was supposed to start an hour earlier then usual, so they could tell us about all that organizing stuff and such. Which was the normal chatter, but well… then the class really started and since the information did not take a full hour, it started 15 minutes early. We had a long list of things the teacher wanted us to bring to that first weekend, included really expensive  copic fine-liner pens, in different line-widths. I normally use edding fine-liner pens, so I took the sizes I already owned with me and only bought a few extra.

So after a few general things about technical drawings, we were supposed to measure clothing and do a 1:5 technical drawing of it. Those are the 2 pieces I worked with:

To work exact in a 1:5 scale is really not as easy as you might think. If you like to, you can try. Well at the end of the class on friday I finished those drawings:

I dont think they look to bad, what do you think? Anyhow this class is taking place in Dresden, and I normally live in Berlin, and that is to far to travel back for the night, even more since the class on saturday started at 8 am.

Well the chamber of crafts in Dresden has a guest house where I stayed the night and a lot of my classmates as well. That is what my room looked like: (in case you are interested)

For one night every week that will do. 😉 Just the pillow was terrible this weekend I will take my own with me.

Well that is all about my first day in master craftsman class, on friday I will tell you about last saturday. And I will try my best to tell you about this friday and saturday a little within the next week.

keep sewing and smiling
