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.

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

If you are new to the class you will need to bring along to the first session: notepad and pen, 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 sewing equipment.  The Centre does have a limited number of sewing machines to borrow (please enquire when enrolling) or you can bring along your own.
