Sewing for Beginners - Saturday

Sewing for absolute beginners - Come and learn to sew with a community of like-minded people, all wanting to learn how to get the most out of their sewing machines!

Following a project-based formula, students will not only learn how to use their sewing machines effectively, but how to read, interpret and create garments from a basic pattern. This course aims to set students up with enough knowledge to be able to create any number of garments from commercial patterns. With a focus on responsible sewing, i.e. low waste, upcycling.

Other topics covered:
• Learn how garments are constructed
• Choosing the right fabric
• Accurate measuring
• Dressmaking tools
• Seam finishes

As this is a beginner course, no experience with sewing is necessary.

Sewing is a rewarding skill that can give you a sense of accomplishment and pride in your creations, boosting your confidence and self-esteem.
