ZERO TO HERO! LEARN TO SEW IN A DAY [May 2021]
Fancy learning to sew and make a garment in a day? In this one day workshop we’ll take you from sewing zero to pyjama-making hero!
Morning: Pass Your Sewing Machine Driving Test! Our 2.5-hour crash course covers all the basics of using your sewing machine. You’ll finish the morning session with a certificate and appliqued ‘L’ plate.
Afternoon: Pyjama Bottoms Workshop – Learn how to cut fabric from a pattern and put your newly mastered sewing skills to the test making a pair of pyjama bottoms in your chosen fabric.
Skills: Threading a sewing machine, basic manoeuvres, learn how to hem, seams, reverse, forward, turn corners, finishing off your work, stitch settings and tension control, using patterns.
Level: Adult (aged 17+), Suitable for complete beginners
Bring: Equipment provided. We have a small selection of reclaimed fabrics to choose from and buy but if you’d prefer to bring your own you’ll need 2.5 metres of a non-stretch cotton type fabric.
*PLEASE NOTE: As a small not-for-profit cooperative, our time and resources are always stretched to the max. In the event that a workshop is at less than 50% capacity, we will need to reschedule it. If this happens, you’ll be given as much notice as possible and your booking can be transferred to a future date or refunded. We hope you understand and thank you for your support.
