Beginners Rubber Vest Making Course
Want to learn how to make rubber clothes?
At Fetish Daddy we run a beginner's day course to help pass on the skills we've learnt over the years. Once you have completed this course we also run an intermediate course if you wish to learn more!
Our courses are designed to help you learn the basics such as cutting, glueing and seaming rubber.
As part of the course, you will learn to pattern cut a basic top. We will guide you on where to take measurements, how to build a pattern block and apply the block to rubber.
In the afternoon you get to cut out your top block and create something unique to you!
The aim will be to have a finished garment by the end of the course, though if we run out of time and you have any little bits to finish off, or you want to make any embellishments such as adding lettering, we supply everyone with the basic tools needed to take home with them.
Due to COVID-19 we now run the course in small groups (maximum 2 people) with one instructor. Giving you as much hands-on experiences as possible. We will do our best to keep you safe including checking your temperature. We ask that you bring face coverings and wash your hands regularly during the workshop.
The course will supply you with:
All tools needed (cutter, seam roller, glue and cleaners to take home and cutting matt for use in the studio)
All block materials (gel pens, ruler, pattern master, and paper)
All rubber (multiple colours are available. However, please contact us if you have a specific colour or design request and we will try and accommodate your wishes!)
The course will be run on bimonthly month.
Current dates are:
- 14th November 2020

The course will take place in our Central London studio (5 mins walk from baker st). We will supply you with plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. You will need to supply your own lunch. There are a few local stores nearby to grab a quick bite to eat.
Please email us if you would like to discuss your designs or if you have any other questions ahead of the class.
