back Julian Roberts - Subtraction cutting

Designer Julian Roberts gives lectures and workshops on a technique that he himself has designed, called ‘subtraction cutting’.

The method consists of creating shapes by removing rather than adding fabric. Through the subtraction of fabric, holes are created for the body that wears the clothes - but this also determines the way the textile is draped around the body.

How all of this works and how you can have a go at the technique yourself is explained in the free cutting book that you can download at no cost from the website.
