At The Auld Atelier studio in Paisley, near Glasgow, whether you've never touched a sewing machine before or you have some projects under your belt but would like to develop your repertoire of techniques and/or build your confidence, we have a 7 week class to suit you.
Every class is structured to:
build your knowledge
knowledge of techniques, and
knowledge of issues such as sustainability in the fashion industry
add samples of techniques learned to your workbook which you will be able to refer back to in the future
create a variety of projects to bring those techniques to life.
Every block of classes builds to you creating a final garment. You will be provided with a paper pattern to use in class and a digital file of your patterns if you want to make them again at home.
You will receive a workbook with all of the skills, projects and spaces for your samples, a memory stick on which you'll find all of your patterns, and some fabric to make all of your projects except for the garment projects for which you will provide the fabric yourself. Assistance will be given in class to select appropriate fabric.
At this time, we are only offering Level 1 and 2 classes. The different levels of classes are linked below, but if you are uncertain of which class is most appropriate, please don't hesitate to get in touch so that we can work it out together. Not all classes are necessarily available at the same time but do please get in touch to register your interest if there are no booking options available.
Alternatively, if you would like to devise a personalised course, you can get in touch to discuss private tuition.
