Ciment Pleating Workshop

This morning was a day of professional practice with Richard Morris about incubation spaces for the following year after graduation and potential for starting up your own business and having the help of the university. Shortly after we had a workshop with Jason from Ciment pleating, a company that remain the number 1 for all pleats and It was a great little workshop to see how all their lovely pleats are put into action and just how beautiful they look.

This was great insight to a working business in hearing all about the time that goes into designing/creating a new pleat and fold, It really put it into perspective just how important time management is as something like this requires thought and room for error when creating a fold that will then be repeated and pushed me to consider my time management for my IG current project. I enjoyed hearing about how they would have to amend these for different materials and projects but I mostly loved being surrounded by beautiful, elegant fabric samples.
