12 Week Evening Course
A comprehensive introduction to sewing with machines and garment making for beginners who would like to start making their own clothes and those with intermediate skills who would like to increase their knowledge.
Learn how to take body measurements, read and alter a commercial pattern to fit, lay out and cut fabric and construct a finished garment to a high standard using one of our Janome 525s or Bernina 1008 series sewing machines. The choice of pattern will be discussed with the tutor in the first session. Beginners will either make a simple top or pyjamas trousers. Intermediate learners can sew a more advanced style.
The course will also give you the skills to adapt and alter your own clothes.
Classes are taught in relaxed small groups in our light and airy first floor studio. Teaching consists of demonstrations and group teaching as well as lots of machine sewing and one-to-one and peer support.
Unlearn those self-taught shortcuts and make this the start of a new hobby/career in sewing or fashion!
A good level of English and basic math skills are useful. No need to bring anything to the first class.
