Why this course?

Student using a sewing machine

This course is design for those who know their way around a sewing machine and want to push their sewing skills further. Students have greater freedom to select their project and opportunity to choose between make do and mend key sewing skill workshops followed by making a garment using a pattern taken from their favourite garment; or they can follow the intermediate course’s scheme of work and make a more tricky lined jacket or pair of jeans.

Please bring large and small sharp fabric scissors, pins, a tape measure and thread to match your fabric. Students are welcome to bring chosen fabric/sample to first class (either a corduroy, denim, suiting, wool or felt. No stretch fabrics please). Interlinings and linings will be discussed in class. Please budget £50-100 for fabric.
