  • Course description

    If you are interested in learning a variety of sewing skills and techniques and wish to gain confidence in using a sewing machine then this course is a ‘must’. Based in a specialist studio, fully equipped with various types of industrial sewing machinery and presses, you will be introduced to a wide range of skills necessary to produce your own patterns, samples and garments.

    Working through a structured programme, this informative course will help you understand all aspects of the garment industry including the fundamental principles of: pattern cutting techniques and terminology; fabrics and interfacings; lay planning and cutting fabric; a wide scope of garment construction methods.

    Through tutor-led, step-by-step demonstrations you will compile a comprehensive folder of information, including samples, garments and paper patterns. Each week will build on the week prior, in a logical and progressive order, starting with the basics of using the sewing machinery and starting to sew, to take you through to finished garments, for which you will have cut the patterns.

    You will quickly gain confidence working in a professional, yet relaxed and friendly atmosphere. With guidance and encouragement from your tutor, you will develop an awareness of the general processes involved in producing various types of garments. This, in turn, will support your learning and equip you with a varied range of skills for working on garments or other personal sewing projects in the future.

    Calico and pattern paper for producing all seam samples and a bodice with sleeves (a toile) will be supplied during the course. Pattern paper will be supplied for an A-line skirt but you will need to buy your own final fabric and zip.
