About this course

During the course students will work towards completing a project which will be discussed at the first session. During the class you will learn basic knowledge of sewing in order to attempt other clothes/garments.

Students will produce 1or2 simple garments/textile items during the 10 week course. They will learn how to
1. Lay, pin and cut out garments correctly.
2. To mark construction details from pattern to fabric.
3. To construct darts and plain open seams.
The following techniques will also be covered as and when students need them.
Zips, inserting sleeves, waistbands, gathering, and hems.
Students will need a basic sewing kit to include fabric and paper scissors, pins, needles, tape measure, un-picker and sewing threads. A sewing machine is not essential, as there are some at the centre. It is better if students can bring their own machine to lessons, as this will enable them to get used to using one machine.
students will not need to bring fabric to the first lesson.

How will I be taught?

One to one guidance, group critiques, self-assessment against individualised learning outcomes stated on the ILP

What do I need to bring with me?

Your own sewing machine is preferable, to enable you to become confident using it, as well as any user manuals as all machines are different (we do have a limited number of machines in the centre to use if you dont have one).
Basic sewing equipment (scissors, both fabric and paper, pins, needles, tape measure)
Fabric will be discussed at the first lesson, however if you have a project already please feel free to bring it along. For those that have been to previous courses your project will be discussed with your tutor.

What can I do next?

We offer longer Sewing and Clothesmaking as well as Saturday specialist workshops e.g. making vintage cushions, curtains, shopping bag.

What do I need to join the course

Basic sewing machine skills.
This course is for everyone from beginners to improvers working on techniques for constructing garments.
