Julian Roberts - Subtraction Cutting


Many garments are created from flat pattern making methods, or from drape methods, but a method of “hollow construction” has been created by fashion designer Julian Roberts. This pattern cutting technique known as “Subtraction Cutting” makes the most of the negative spaces that can be opened up in fabric and falls somewhere between traditional pattern making and drape resulting in experimental garments that break the boundaries of the usual garment shapes.

This is a pattern cutting technique that Julian has shared through lectures and demonstrations in 32 countries worldwide.

In this workshop you will spend a week with Julian exploring all the possibilities of this method through experimental cutting and gestural painting/sketching.
