How will I be taught?
Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques.
Your tutor will give you individual feedback and assess you as you progress through the course.
What do I need to bring with me?
Students will need to bring small sewing equipment, such as sharp scissors for cutting fabric, pins, needles, a tape measure, chalk fabric pencil, sewing threads to match fabrics; a retractable metal tape measure; a folder, paper and pens for notes and handouts. A digital camera is also useful.
PLEASE BRING SOME FABRIC ALONG TO THE FIRST SESSION - SUITABLE FOR MAKING A SMALL ITEM SUCH AS A CUSHION COVER OR FOR ANY OTHER PROJECT YOU WISH TO START ON.
The tutor will have a selection of items for sale, such as zipping, curtain linings and headings, piping cord, some threads, wadding and interfacings.
There are no sewing machines at the centre to use, so students need to bring their own. Students will be taught how to use it properly if they don't know how! Don't forget to bring all the accessories, foot controls and leads for the machine.
What can I do next?
Your tutor will be able to advise.
