Dressmaking – All Abilities

Course Details

If you have been inspired by the various sewing programmes on the TV or find that shopping for clothes is mission impossible – this could be the course for you.  No previous experience is required – just enthusiasm.  You will be taken through your chosen project step by step.  Learn how to make a simple garment, use and alter a commercial pattern and all the techniques required.  Work at your own pace and have fun along the way.

If you are new to the class you will need to bring along to the first session a notepad and pen and a tape measure. During the first session you will be advised as to what you will need to bring along to the next sessions.  Otherwise please bring along a pattern and fabric of your choice to work on along with your own sewing machine and sewing equipment.  The Centre does have a limited number of sewing machines to borrow (please enquire when enrolling). 

Information & Support

You will be taught by means of practical demonstration and hands on experience.

Courses and workshops will be offered throughout the year giving learners the opportunity to further develop their skills. Please see our latest Leisure Courses brochure for details.
