Course Description

If you have never used a sewing a sewing machine before (or it has been a while...), then you have found the right course for you!

This is a six week programme designed to begin you on your sewing journey.  Starting with the basics of how to set up your sewing machine, over the course of the programme, you will learn all the essential skills you need to create your own skirt.  Along the way, you will build your own sample book of all the techniques that you will be able to refer back to at home any time, and a range of other projects including a make up bag, bowl cosy, tablet cover, apron and more!

You will also learn how to follow a pattern, leaving the class with a full pattern for your finished skirt, as well as exploring the sustainability issues facing the world of fashion.

This course is suitable for complete beginners or those needing to refresh their skills.

Classes are limited to 6 people.  

A range of class times are available to allow you to select the one which suits you best.  If your preferred option is unavailable, you can be added to a waitlist for a future class at that time and we will let you know when a place becomes available.  Please contact us if you would like to be added to the waitlist.
