Our 2nd event, November 2023

Categories: Previous Events

The Corsetry Retreat November ’23, held at Skendleby hall in Lincolnshire, UK – Published December ’23

The Corsetry Retreat was held in Skendleby Hall, a beautiful manor house in the Lincolnshire Wolds UK.  

The weekend included a full schedule of corsetry workshops, as well as time to relax in the historic surroundings, meet with like-minded people, and unwind in the hall’s hot tub and sauna or in the snooker or games rooms. 

Each day was focussing on a different skill set. Day one was pattern drafting and creating historical shapes, day two was consisting of toiling to get the perfect fit, and the last day was focusing on construction techniques where people sampled all the techniques they might want to use, or spent their time to start constructing their corsets.
