Intermediate Sewing Course Term 2


Term 1 has now commenced. Please contact us if you would like to register your interest for Term 2 courses (commencing late April). We will get in touch when bookings open.
An ‘advanced beginners’ course for sewists who have completed our Beginners and Beyond Basics courses (or equivalent). Students have the skills to confidently use a sewing machine to sew garments and other textiles following easy patterns. 

Over eight 2 1/2 hour lessons you will continue to learn new skills and consolidate your sewing practice. In this course you will make a classic long sleeved shirt and a fitted dress (some sewing between classes will be required to keep up). Both are more challenging projects, which teach skills essential to the advanced sewist’s repertoire.

Along with advanced sewing techniques you will learn how to adjust patterns and garments-in-progress so they fit you properly.

We will provide: Sewing machines and all other equipment, snacks, and handout notes and lots of very practical techniques!

Bring along: Your own sewing machine if you would  like to learn on that, patterns, fabric, pins, interfacing and matching thread.

Where: The Gaye Abandon Workroom, 122 Buckley St, Footscray.

When: Term 2 courses will begin in late April.

For students who have completed our Beginners and Beyond Basics Sewing courses or equivalent. This Intermediate Sewing Course is for sewists who can confidently sew simple garments and would like more formal tuition on advanced methods, finishing, and fitting techniques.

In this twenty hour Intermediate Sewing Course you will:
  • Consolidate and build on your existing  sewing skills
  • learn more advanced garment construction and fitting techniques
  • use more challenging sewing patterns to construct garments that work for you
  • finesse the techniques involved in creating ‘me made’ clothes with a high quality finish.

Sewing is a wonderful life skill to possess.

You will find that you value and cherish the things you make for years to come. Gaining confidence in using a sewing machine and stitching by hand is the first step to realising any number of textile projects. From clothes making and crafting to incorporating sewn textiles into your creative practice knowing how to sew is an essential skill!
