Corset-making Intensive – January 11 & 18, February 8, 11am – 6pmCorsetDuo

Course takes place over 3 Saturdays, with 2 intensive learning & sewing days, 11am to 6pm each day (with 1 hour lunch break & homework in between the two classes), and a half day to finish up, followed by a potluck and optional photo shoot. (After all, our sewing studio is actually a photography studio – may as well get a professional pic of you in your splendid new creation!)

You must bring your own sewing machine, scissors, pins. This is not a class for beginning sewers. If you don’t already sew, we recommend you take a basic sewing class elsewhere before attempting this one. For a general idea of course content, look at our tutorial. Our methods have been updated since we posted the tutorial, and what you learn will be somewhat different, but this will give you an idea of what you’re getting into.

We will provide all other materials except your corset cover fabric. You will buy that between classes.

Cost is $150 (includes all materials except your corset cover fabric)

Location is the Secret Garden Studio in Lovettsville, Virginia

If you would like to register for Corset Making Intensive, email Hera von Hedwig at madamevonhedwig at steampunkfamily dot com. A deposit of $50 is due by January 6 to reserve your place. We guarantee you will have fun and learn lots!

  • What a great photo of two staunch colleagues and friends amidst the provisioning of their respective helmeted piths with near-regal aplomb. A portrait worthy of the title ” A Joining of Empires” moment. One an empress off the air , the other of time & space itself. So glad they get along as there are enough tatters & tears in the space-timeconinuum as it is. The less need for the rustling of bustles the better. By all means toast yourselves toastey, the universe is safer for it.
