  1. Hi!
    Just FYI – there is also a Steel-boned Corsetry course being run at the Marleston TafeSA in April; it was unfortunately omitted from the short course guide.

  2. Hello, this is Jennifer, I teach the bra making, evening bodice and corset and swimwear class at Modbury TAFE and the day bra classes at TAFE city. There is a bodice class again this term, but I just wanted to let you know the 2011 course dates are being set at the moment. We have so much fun in these classes if anyone is interested in coming along I would love to see you there.

  3. Perth does have stuff like this, check out the Central Institute of Technology. They run short courses very similar to these shown here (pattern making, lingerie, corsetry etc). I’m doing a course there now!
