Explore Creativity: Pleating

– 08.11.11 –

Today we had a guest visitor, Terry Weinhart of Climent Pleaters – established since 1925. A professional in the industry! I was absolutely fascinated by Terry and his craftsmanship. Knowing that he and his company produced pleats to most parts of the world, celebrities and MOST fashion industries. It was an absolute privilege meeting him and listening to his presentation.

Terry discussed about pleating and taught us how to pleat [ it’s a skill! ]. He showed us a selection of pleat examples from card templates [ older than me – 46 year old template! ], to his portfolio of work and variety of pleats.

After the presentation, we did our own pleats starting off with box and knife pleats.



























































I was absolutely fascinated and inspired by todays workshop. As I did more of a complex pleat, the more difficult it got for me as it was time consuming and brain damaging! But I was happy with the results and motivated!

Peace. – Sajj P.
