A 10 week Sewing course suitable for beginners and anyone who wants to brush up on their existing skills. We will cover a wide range of techniques and methods that are usable for dressmaking, interior design and more creative handmade projects. These skills are taught through a variety of hands-on projects, demonstrations and guided supervision.

The knowledge and expertise you gain will be:
- Getting total control of the sewing machine.
- Mastering a variety of seams, stitches and finishings.
- Experiment with colours, pattern and fabric properties.
- How to sew zips, buttonholes, corners, curves and darts.
- Have a go at applique or patchwork to give projects a whole different twist.
