What To Expect From The Sewing Masterclass

Learn professional tailoring skills. With Joy.

At Tailor Academy, we focus on practice, sharing useful knowledge, and instilling the joy of working with beautiful garments in all course participants. From the very first lesson, they receive the same information and insights we pass on to our own apprentices because we want them to feel the same joy and appreciation for the craft as we do.

What you'll get in the masterclass:

A Course Made With You in Mind!

One of the reasons cat-walk models look so good when they’re strutting down the runway is that their clothing is all custom-tailored. They’re made to measure, not simply bought off the rack in a local high-street store. Our online sewing training will teach you how to tailor clothes precisely to your body, no matter your shape or size. No more unflattering shapeless clothing – only dresses that fit you to perfection.

Learn All the Tricks of the Trade

Our master tailor Stefan is a 9th-generation sewing master, and under his tutelage, you’ll gain insight into some of the most masterful tips and tricks of the trade. This masterclass is exactly that; it offers unparalleled insights into what it takes to elevate your sewing to the next level, but does so in a friendly, supportive, and wholly encouraging fashion. Our clothes making courses aren’t places of intimidation – they’re places of inclusion.

Genuine Tailoring Skills Straight From The Expert

Stefan Wimmer explains why we share our know-how in an online sewing class

When we first announced that we’d share our knowledge of the tailoring craft, the reactions ranged from curiosity to criticism, but for us, it was a question of ensuring the future of the trade.

As one of the oldest tailor’s shops in the world, we have collected generations’ worth of knowledge and practical experience, passing on this wealth of knowledge to our numerous award-winning apprentices, master tailors and designers over the years. But more often than not, we had to send away qualified and talented people because there are many more applicants than places available.

Thanks to Tailor Academy, the professional online sewing class for all levels, that limitation is now a thing of the past and thousands of people can now realise their dreams of acquiring professional dressmaking skills straight from the tailors workshop.

Stefan Wimmer, 9th-generation sewing master

Stefan Wimmer runs the bespoke tailoring shop “Wimmer schneidert” in Salzburg, Austria, in its ninth generation. He learned the 280-year-old knowledge from his father and grandfather, who in turn learned it from the generations before them. Over the past 50 years, he has deepened, refined, and enhanced this knowledge.

It has always saddened him when yet another traditional artisan business had to close down, which has happened more and more frequently over the last few decades. Many of these businesses never wanted to share their unique craftsmanship knowledge with the world, so as not to train their competition. Their knowledge has thus been lost forever.

Stefan Wimmer wants to take a different path: He shares his knowledge with the world so that the – what is in our eyes the most beautiful craft in the world – can continue to thrive. Thus as many people as possible can benefit from it and bring beauty into the world.

Stefan Wimmer himself is the father of five children and is looking forward to also soon passing on the business to the next generation.

"Piece by piece, we sew the world a bit more beautiful."
