This Learn to Sew Short course runs over four x 2.5 hour lessons. Starting from scratch, you will gain the sewing skills to get you started making homewares, clothes and crafts. Each week you will build up your practice and learn new techniques. This short course is an abridged version of our seven week Beginner’s Sewing Course

Skill Level: Suitable for absolute beginner’s with little or no experience using a sewing machine. Open to adults and young adults (minimum age 15yo). If you already have some sewing experience and skills making simple items, and are interested in learning more about making garments, read about our Intro to Clothes Making or  Beyond Basics Courses.

We will provide: Sewing machines if needed, beverages, handout notes, patterns for the projects, fabric for the first project and lots of very practical advice and techniques!

Bring along: Your own sewing machine if you would  like to learn on that and your sewing kit if you have one (recommended for Covid Safe Plan). Any remnant fabric you would like to use.
