  • What does the course involve?

    This course is for those who are complete beginners or those who wish to learn the basics of using a sewing machine. We will start from the very beginning and learn how to thread a sewing machine, wind on the bobbin. Using a pattern you will make a tote bag. Then move onto making a cushion with a zip, followed by a project involving a button hole.

    From there we will progress on to looking at sewing button holes, inserting zips, different seam finishes and how each of these techniques can be applied to a project to reinforce the process. You will be expected to provide fabric for these projects, this will be explained in the first session. The course is taught in our fashion studios where we have industrial and domestic sewing machines for you to use.

  • How much does it cost?

    You will have to provide your own materials and fabric.
