Pattern workshops

Our experts support you with their knowledge. With our Hohenstein pattern workshops, we educate you and your employees about the theory and practice of pattern services. Workshop participants have the possibility to send in one product sample of their own collection, which has potential for optimization. During the workshop session, the pattern of the handed in products will be discussed and compared with the improved samples.

Our industry-wide workshops are always focused on specific product groups − from trousers to raglan sleeves, graded also for the biggest sizes.
In our internally workshops we will answer your individual questions. We will discuss the challenges and possibilities of optimizing pattern based on your own products.

New dates in Autumn 2017

This autumn, we will once again be offering industry-wide German-language workshops at the Hohenstein headquarter. The specific dates and workshop details can be found on the German-speaking website.
Please send us a request if you are interested in an English-language workshop.
