WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is ideal for those setting up a fashion business, wanting to put their fashion designs into production and needing to create a technical pack for garment manufacture.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The Techpack is usually prepared by the designer and is an essential tool for dealing with factories and going into production. Techpacks include all the specifications and instructions for the garments to be manufactured
By the end of this course, especially when combined with Stage 1, students will be able to create a full basic template at an entry industry level.
This course will cover:
- Why/what a technical pack is.
- Creating a template for the layout of a techpack – heading /composition
- The information that needs to be added to a technical pack – looking at stitch detail/trims, technical terms etc and considering how the garment will be constructed.
- Creating technical drawings for the details
- Creating a trim sheet.
HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO I ALREADY NEED?
Ideally students will have completed the Stage 1 of this course, or have similar existing skills. Very competent computer skills are essential for this course.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Students are required to bring their own laptops along to the sessions, and we will require you to download the trail version of Adobe Illustrator prior to the courses. You will receive details of how to do this upon booking confirmation.
