Instructor: Patrick Bingham
Instructor Bio: Patrick Bingham originally hails from Richmond, Virginia, but has spent time living in DC, London, and Phoenix. His interests in patternmaking developed from an initial frustration at the onset of the pandemic in 2020 where a lack of masks and costly alternatives drove him to sewing. In that time, he developed his skillset via Arizona State University's brilliant fashion program, where he undertook courses in garment construction, flat patternmaking, digital patternmaking and technical design. It was there he developed a love for clothing engineering and a vision for helping industry and home sewers in their design to pattern process.
