To better assist our participants in choosing workshops that they will be comfortable with, we have devised the following
Level system.

Level 1
This is a beginner level.  Participant should have basic hand sewing skills and some knowledge of 18th century clothing.  You may or may not have made a costume using a commercial pattern
Level 2
This is an intermediate level. Good hand sewing skills are required.  You should have produced an article of 18th century clothing using a pattern (or draping) and have fitted that piece of clothing.  You should have some familiarity with proper 18th century attire. Ladies should own their own stays and shift.

Level 3
This is an advanced class.  Solid hand sewing skills are required.  It is best that you have taken an intermediate course.  For ladies an example would be the gown-draping workshop, for men, a waistcoat or hunting frock workshop.

Level 4
This is an advanced plus class.  Participants in this course should have already taken more then one fitting class and be familiar thru observation with the garment being produced.  Student should be very comfortable with 18th century fashion style and should own all appropriate underpinnings, such as stays, hoops or rolls, shift etc.  For men they should own a properly made shirt, breeches and waistcoat.
