2 day weekend sewing course (12 hours)
10am – 5pm Saturday
A wonderful introduction to learn how to make your own clothes. Enjoy the special feeling of wearing something unique that fits you exactly!
Over two days, expert sewing tutor Deborah Andrews will teach you how to take body measurements, read and adapt a paper pattern, lay out, cut fabric and make a simple top in the fabric of your choice using one of our simple to use Janome 525s and Bernina 1008 series sewing machines.
You will need 1.5 metres of a 100% cotton or polycotton fabric (it is easier if the right and wrong sides of the fabric are easily identifiable.)
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 maths skills are useful. Remember to bring your fabric.
If you aren’t confident at using a sewing machine, we recommend our ‘Intro to Sewing machines’ one day class.Register for this event
