Gerber course success!

On 7th June expert Gerber tutor Ben Cooper returned for the three-day Gerber for Beginners course at the FTA



Another full class the group was made up of manual pattern cutters and designers looking to expand their knowledge and upskill their existing pattern cutting experience.

The course included:

Drafting of basic pattern pieces directly on screen
Manipulation of blocks into new styles

Performing many basic pattern cutting techniques digitally (e.g., mirroring a piece, adding seams and notches, manipulating darts, adding volume, adding pleats, and annotating patterns)
Pattern Digitizing



Following the course feedback received:

‘I have learnt new digital processes for Gerber notches, alignment, rotating file save. Very good workshop, very informative’

‘It was very enjoyable and has helped me to understand a lot more about creating a pattern from a block to the computer’

‘I have learnt so much! Now feel very confident and excited about Gerber!’


Another great course! The next 3 day course will take place on 8th – 10th September.
