Unless stated otherwise, Corsetry courses are taught by Julia Bremble author of the best selling e-book, "Corset Making, from beginner to intermediate" published by Rainbow disks in 2012.  Julia who has been making corsets for many years runs the popular online corset making supplies shop Sew Curvy, is the founder and Director of the annual Oxford Conference of Corsetry,  and also operates a bespoke corsetry service under the label Clessidra Couture.  Through her study of anthropometrics and anatomy alongside traditional pattern cutting, Julia has developed a unique method and approach to corset making which she has been teaching for the past 4 years.  During that time she has become established and acknowledged as a leading expert in the field and has taught students  from all over the world in her woodland studio in rural Oxfordshire.  Julia's work has been featured on the BBC,  and has wide local and national press coverage.
