You'll Learn:

How to use the sewing machine and about measuring, pattern matching/placing, cutting out and making up fabrics. Also different techniques in stripping, simple repairs and upholstering using traditional and modern methods.

You'll Love:

The relaxed atmosphere in this easily accessible campus. Students have individual tuition as you chose what project you want to do.

You'll Progress:

At your own pace, starting with simple items and moving to more advanced projects. As this is a leisure course you will not be required to complete a portfolio of your work and there will be no formal examinations.

You'll Need:

Basic sewing items  (scissors, measuring tape, pins etc). For upholstery you may also want to bring your own lightweight hammer, tack lifter and staple gun (optional) although upholstery tools and sewing machines are provided for your use. If you have an item to be upholstered (you'll will have to bring it each  week as we don't have storage facilities) bring it on your first day, however further information will be given to all students then.
