I will teach you the basics of sewing. I'll teach you how to thread a machine and get you started on your own projects.
You'll meet people who have got the same interest as you. Classes will be kept small so you can get the attention you need. Alternatively you can have one to one lessons. I will provide the patterns and some sewing accessories. Sewing machines can also be provided. If however, you have your own machine, then please bring that.
The course will cover the following
Health and safefty of sewing.
How to thread a sewing machine.
The basic sewing machine.
Start on an easy project (small repair, cushion, apron, bag, table runner etc).
Learn to read patterns.
Adjusting a pattern to fit your measurements.
Working on a garment and completing it to a good standard.
We can go through everything at your pace in my sewing studio or in the comfort of your home. The lessons will be tailored to your requirements.
Research has shown that sewing can be an outlet for children's creativity. It will help them to develop as well as learning patience and discipline. At the same time they are learning a new skill that will stay with them for years to come. From aged eight children can work with needles and under close supervision and learn how to operate a sewing machine. Your child now has the opportunity to learn how to sew within 6 weeks in blocks of 2 hours per week. They will learn the basics of sewing and work on few projects to improve their sewing skills. The course will cover the following;
- Hand sewn projects.
- Learning how to thread and use a sewing machine.
- Learning about the different stitches.
- Using a pattern and cutting fabric.
- Learning to sew a garment.
Sewing machines will be provided but I like to encourage students to bring their own machine where possible. Parents and carers are welcome to stay during the lessons.
9 weeks lessons - ₤90
Snacks and drinks will be provided.
