Saturday Beginners Sewing Class – August
August 17 @ 10:30 am - August 24 @ 3:00 pm£20 – £60
Our Beginners Sewing course is ideal to get you started. We can teach you all the basics including an understanding of your sewing machine, accurate stitching and basic problem solving (or avoiding!). The course will run over 2 consecutive Saturdays, as will July’s, running from 10.30 – 3.pm, and lasts for 2 weeks. The course also runs on a Wednesday evening most months apart from the summer, running over 4 consecutive weeks in the evening.
We will cover:
Week 1: Learn to use your sewing machine, tips and tricks for easier faff free sewing, also practice how to sew in a straight line, sew curves and corner with ease. Plus: Learn to change a needle, check your tension, then move on to seams and hems, learning the most useful of each.
Week 2: Make a simple item to practice and consolidate the skills you’ve learnt. Fabric and patterns/instructions all provided, or feel free to bring your own.
£60 including materials and refreshments. Please pay a £20 deposit to book and pay the balance on the first session of the course. Look at the ‘deposit’ tickets to see how many places are left. Please ignore if the full price ticket says sold out, places are determined by the deposits paid.
If you have your own machine we do advise you to bring it along, otherwise we can provide one at a cost of £5 per session. Everything else is provided as needed, but again feel free to bring your equipment if you have it.
We will have half an hour break for lunch, food is not provided but is available in several places near the workshop, or bring a picnic!!
