How will I be taught?
Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
At the start of the course you will work with your tutor to develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set out what you want to achieve by the end of the course. You will both monitor and assess your progress throughout the course to ensure your learning needs are being met. There are no formal exams or tests to complete on this course.
What do I need to bring with me?
You will need:
-A pen, pencil and notebook
-A basic sewing kit
-Scissors, pins and a tape measure
-You may wish to bring your own sewing machine
If you are a beginner you should bring a paper pattern rated by the manufacturer as easy/basic. Please buy fabric, thread etc as detailed on the pattern, if possible seek advice/confirmation from a shop assistant.
Experienced students should buy a pattern for a garment of an appropriate level along with fabric etc.
For safety only closed toes shoes should be worn.
What can I do next?
You will be able to take further courses or take on a specific project class.
What do I need to join the course
Everyone is welcome. It is important to note that craft courses are practical requiring a degree of manual dexterity and students will need to participate fully to get the most out of the course.
This is a mixed level class, beginners and more experienced students are all welcome. Students will work at an appropriately challenging level on their own projects.
