8 Week Garment Course

Join us for eight consecutive weeks to learn the ins and outs of garment making.

Join us at our creative studio for this eight week garment making course. We'll guide you through each step from preparing your fabric, cutting your pattern and setting up the sewing machine. You will work on a cardigan, dress and skirt.

This small group workshop is limited to two students, giving you enough personal attention and help throughout each session. Suitable for beginners or those with little sewing knowledge.

Please note, this class will run for eight consecutive weeks.

Highlights

  • Begin the course by working on the cardigan, then advance to the dress and finally the skirt. Learn all about the patterns for each garment and what each line/symbol means.
  • Learn how to prepare your fabric for particular parts of the garment. You will be guided through how to interface, construct two different types of pockets, add binding to arm and neck holes, and fit the garment to your body shape.
  • Learn how to use the essential tools for garment making and when best to use them.
