Learn by doing.

Basic theoretical knowledge + concrete, practical assistance.

We give you tips and tricks for pattern-making that help turn design into reality and show you how to recognize and resolve fit problems in existing patterns. Workshop participants send a product with an imperfect pattern. Our textile engineers optimize the pattern for you and discuss solutions during the workshop.

Hohenstein Pattern Workshops

At Hohenstein headquarters, we conduct workshops focused on specific product groups - from shapely bras through stylish loungewear to elegant suits. Using practical examples and training documents, we transfer knowledge from our experienced clothing engineers to your product/design/sourcing teams. During discussion groups, participants ask questions and exchange ideas.

Customized Workshops

In customized workshops, we address your specific projects and needs. Together, we discuss the opportunities and challenges for optimizing your product's pattern design. Practical examples and training materials facilitate our the discussion, which can take place at Hohenstein headquarters in Germany or at your facility.


Learn how to create your own patterns, recognize fit problems, design model patterns and add the final touches to your production model.
