Introduction to Sewing
If you are looking to start sewing with a machine but have no experience, then this course is perfect for you!
After this course, you can progress your sewing skills with our “Sewing your next garment” course.
Please note: This course takes place on Mondays. Courses are 6 weeks, except the course beginning on 8 January, which is 5 weeks.
You will learn key sewing techniques, simple garment construction skills and how to work with easy fabrics.
This is a very practical course. By the end, you will have completed a simple garment, a paper pattern and embedded it onto a fabric of your choice.This should give you the confidence to start basic machine sewing independently.
You will need a basic sewing kit consisting of fabric scissors, small scissors, pins, thread, needles, tape measure and un-picker.
You will be provided with 1.5 meters of Calico. This is a plain-woven textile made from unbleached and often not fully processed cotton. The cost is included in your fee.
You will need to purchase 2m of your own woven fabric and a pattern for this course.
