The Whitechapel Workhouse is an atelier based in East London. It is fully equipped and capable of constructing anything from woven’s to stretch and leather to lace.
Our team’s primary focus is on constructing costume and couture fashion pieces for industry. Whether for stage, screen or catwalk, we have the capacity to create a diverse range of pieces, be they accessories or fully-fledged fashion creations.
We also offer a unique environment in which we mentor and nurture technical excellence to assist in the creation & construction process.
Our mission is to ‘educate through experience’, with a very hands on approach to learning.
From our Workhouse in the heart of the East End, we are able to offer support and training, from design development, through fabric selection, to final construction. We aim to ensure the designer is confident in 3D production and the viability of their design concepts.
In addition to the production service, the workhouse will also be offering workshops & classes encompassing specialist skills from professionals at Industry standards. The direction of these workshops will be focused on placing craftsmanship centre stand and making it the lynch pin of the design process.
