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.
