Intermediate Sewing Course Term 2- 8 weeks from Monday 29th April

$460.00

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.
