Intro to Sewing Techniques

Tuesday evenings 6.30pm-9.00pm (27.5 hours).

Learn to sew with garment making techniques.
Become confident and proficient in making your own clothes.

During this 11 or 12 week course, learners will have a chance to perfect all the stages of basic dressmaking and tailoring by concentrating on universal and classic techniques to sewing success.

Professional sewing tutor Tracey Mee will guide you through all the processes to build up a portfolio of samples that you can use as a reference book for future projects.

Weeks 1 and 2 is a comprehensive introduction to the sewing machine helping you feel confident and independent by learning simple hems, joins and sewing tips.

A different topic is covered each week for the rest of the course and will include zips, button holes, waistbands, sleeves, collars and cuffs.

Even if you have never touched a sewing machine, this small class is suitable to ramp up your skills so you can take on sewing patterns of any kind. As the course progresses, you will discover that the same techniques can be used in different things. So building up on the different techniques is also refreshing skills learnt in a previous lesson.

A good level of English and basic math skills are useful. No need to bring anything to the first class
