What for and Why GUTGAR EXPERIENCE?
 
VISION: The Gutgar Experience purpose is to transform the world of fashion. The fashion needs brave and bole designers, with a holistic vision and training, that will allow them to realize in a sustainable way any project that they propose themselves.
 
OBJECTIVE: we train respectful and conscious creators connected with the environment and themselves, so that they can make of this career, an example to follow.

Why GUTGAR EXPERIENCE is an Exclusive School?
 
At The GUTGAR EXPERIENCE, quality in training prevails, along with commitment to the philosophy of the School´s Holistic Training Method and the dedication of the trainer when working individually with each student in their own development, whatever it may be, wherever they come from … imparting not only all her knowledge, but all the love and passion for this profession.
 
To grant all of the above, we reduce a number of students only to 3 persons per class. Therefore The GUTGAR EXPERIENCE is an Exclusive School.
 
HOLISTIC TRAINING METHOD
 
Observation and listening. The first step.
 
We consider each student individually, asking ourselves which are their qualities, their interests, their flairs, their dreams… and how can we help them. Through listening and observation we obtain the answers to all these questions and we start the germination and flowering process, giving each one their own seeds, those that resound with their way of learning, making their experience, a unique experience of learning.
 
We try to build all our training on 4 basic factors that must be developed and well-balanced:
 
The body: In The Gutgar Experience the body is a fundamental part, as this is our working tool, which allows us to bring our creative ideas to life. For that, we teach the proper posture, where the body feels comfortable to work without stresses. We teach and help to connect with it, and we learn to listen to it as the Great Teacher. It will lead our work to success, without emotional burdens, transmitted into the garment by unconscious posture.
 
Emotions and feelings: Another basic aspect is the management of the emotions and feelings, that arise through all the learning proccess. Pattern making and sewing, as well as creative blocking, sometimes, produce paralyzing and frustrating emotions… they show our own fears, sometimes unconscious, our insecurities, since this discipline requires a great deal of concentration, presence, the latter is something that we have lost in our society and in our way of life.  
 
Learning to manage and to place those emotions will clear the learning path, transforming it not only in enjoyment and professional growth path, but also in a path of personal growth.
 
The willingness: To become aware that we have this dynamic energy that it is at our disposal and that makes our ideas come true. Motivating students , making them see that everything is possible, is to prepare the ground so that they connect to their willpower and exercise it. Teaching them perseverance as a differentiating competency.
 
Creativity: We are all creative beings. At The School, we help to rediscover yourself, we help to deepen your ideas, your style, your colour tones, giving them a meaning, we help to find your uniqueness and enhance it. We transmit the importance of recognizing each garment. We accept any project you want to create without limits, as the creativity is unlimmited. It is an inexhaustible source from which e can all drink and the coherence, is one of our characteristics.
 
Who can be a potential student of GUTGAR EXPERIENCE?
 
Any person , of any age, who has a concern to create clothing, either with professional or hobby views.
You do not have to have any knowledge of design, sewing or pattern making, as in our School we teach from scratch, covering all the needs of our students.
 
ORGANIC PATTERN METHOD AND CONSCIOUS COUTURE
 
In The Gutgar Experience you will learn a different pattern and sewing method, created and developed by our trainer Verónica Gutgar. Method developed from her experience as holistic designer and pattern maker. Pattern, as unique and non-transferable vision, is the start point from where the garment is created, giving life to the concept of “wearing a body”, taking into consideration its movement and estructure, focusing on the organic part, that helps to develop and enhance observation and logic. The technique you can just learn by heart.
 
A method that arise from the ideal of beauty of the ancient Egypteans, Greeks and Renaissance theories related to symmetry and proportion, which is shown not only in the human being, but in all of Nature, the Golden ratio.
 
The organic pattern combines in its essence harmony and consonance, which togehter wiht Verónica´s innate vision of aesthetic and beauty, creates an unique and differentiated method.

    ISABEL ALONSO

    “A revolution! So can be defined my time at The Gutgar Experience.
    What started as “I want to learn how to do a small clothing repairs” has led to the wonderful discovery of being able to create clothes that I imagine with my own hands.
    Verónica offers a global, holistic and conscious teaching… but that she does not tell you is that attending her classes is totally therapeutic. An experience that favors personal growth: Thank you Verónica!”

      MARTA SELLES

      “I recommend the Gutgar Experience School completely, without a doubt and after having attended to several pattern and clothing schools in Alicante and having studied its different pattern methods, I can assert that The Gutgar Experience is the best fashion School in Alicante. Thanks to Verónica I have been able to make imposible patterns.
      Verónicas´s talent is incredible and she gets transmit their students all her motivation and joy. Without a doubt , after being several years learning with her, I feel fully preparated to enter into the the world of fashion on a professional level.”

        FRAN UTRILLA

        “The Gutgar Experience has been a before and after for me.
        Starting with the perception of pattern making, a concept that I thought I knew until the date I started at The Gutgar Experience. The importance to visualizing and being able to capture your designs in a pattern is very important for a fashion designer. Being able to make an idea or draft come true is what gives meaning to our profession.
        In The Gutgar Experience you learn to give importance to small details , such as the position of the hands when working, the finishes and styles of our clothes, the construction of a pattern through conscious reflection, etc. All this is what makes the difference, what you adquire and promote based on your needs or future projection.”

          ELENA BARRERO

          “I have allways been a pasionate of fashion. I liked playing, testing and trying to make my own difference. I started to enhance my creativity when I began my studies of fashion design, but I really started to value it when I met Vero in my second year. The sensitivity, conscience and heart that goes into everything is totally contagious. There are not obstacles, all you want to create is possible. With her I have learnt that sewing makes you connect with an inner peace that we often do not know we have.
          Although reaching the end of any project can have many obstacles, the satisfaction of the final work is incomparable.
          The fabric, the details, the losse threads, the pattern. All this “with the very careful handling”- as Veronica always says.”

            JULIA VERA

            “I allways had the concern to design and create. This led me to study interior design, but I also felt the need to enter in the Couture world.
            Over a year and a half ago I contacted with The Gutgar Experience. I have to say that by then I did not even know how to insert a pin. Vero made me not only to learn to insert that pin, but also instilled in me the love for this profession, making her classes a unique experience.
            Thanks to her pattern method, her way of teaching and her knowledge of listening and transmitting, I have been able to realize many of the Works I have allways wanted. Making this experience more and more enjoyable.”

              ISABEL GARCIA

              “Pattern making become easily with her. All those laborious calculations learned in other places to make patterns, here, disappear. Her organic pattern method makes you understand every part of the body and thus feel able to praise it, both in women, men and children.
              She allways greets you with a smile and encourages you to reach your dreams. Thanks to her, I have done a u-turn and I am beginning to fulfill them.”

                IRENE MELERO

                “In The Gutgar Experience I have learned a lot. I came with a basic knowledge of pattern making and clothing. Thanks to the methods that are given in the classes apart from the learning, you can develop the vision of how to dress a body.
                From these new pattern making methods I have been able to visualize the garment and build in, something that before I started at The Gutgar Experience I did not see myself capable of doing. I have been able to realize Projects that I did not image finishing.
                The learning that can be obtained at The Gutgar Experience is something that anyone who wants to dedícate to fashion should acquire.”

                  MARIA JOSE DIAZ

                  “I must say that I have felt within me the concern to learn pattern making and sewing for a long time. For me, meeting Verónica and her School has meant a beam of light that has iluminated the way for me to follow, learning that it is never too late to start if you really want to do it. The process requires patience, but the illusion and well-being they generate make it an enjoyement.
                  Thank you Verónica for teaching us the essence, the reasoning of how to capture the volume of the body, rectify our postures when working, give us a holistic knowledge of the whole process, which is a wonderful universe.
                  Thank you for that magnificent positive energy that you transmit in everything. In short, a unique experience.”

                    SARA MONTEAGUD

                    “When creativity, work and detail come together in the same room, they create the atmosphere you feel at School.
                    Everything flows with positive energy and music.
                    Her classes make you focus on your own dreams, become aware and feel safe at every step you take, focusing on what makes you happy.
                    All her experience, keys, advises and good work will make you love the world of fashion, pattern making and clothing more and more everyday.
                    I encourage you to become involved with us in an environment, full of energy, where you work speaks of you.”
