Weekly SEWING & Dressmaking Classes
The weekly sewing & dressmaking class runs on Monday mornings from 9.30am to 11.30am. Summer 2018 term dates will be:
First half term: Monday 16th April to Monday 21st May with no class on 7th May because of the bank holiday (5 classes in total).
Second half term: Monday 4th June to Monday 16th July (7 classes in total)
The classes have no more than 6 learners, so plenty of tutor attention, and last for 2 hours. The classes are suitable for all abilities from beginner through to experienced sewers. (Ideally you do need to know how to use a sewing machine but if you haven’t used one before you are still welcome to join the class as we can cover the basics in the first lesson and then you will pick up further skills and knowledge as you progress through your project.) The class runs concurrently with the weekly knitting, crochet & needlepoint class, as our multi-talented tutor teaches both sewing and stitch-based crafts.
During the classes, you will work on your own projects at your own pace under the guidance of the tutor. You are welcome to discuss your project with the tutor in advance of the first class, and she will be able to advise about any specific equipment/materials that you will need. The tutor is happy to cover all aspects of sewing and dressmaking, including following a pattern, pattern adjustments to get a perfect fit, garment alterations and pattern cutting.
Classes cost £20 per class and booking is for half a term at at time with payment in advance to secure your place. Renewal priority is given to people who are already in the class. We also welcome new starters mid-term if there are spaces available.
There are currently spaces for the Summer 2018 first half term so if you would like to join the class, please book here:
