About the course

This introductory course is designed to teach the sewing novice to use a sewing machine effectively by creating a selection of sewn craftwork pieces. Students with some previous knowledge are welcome to join for a recap. This short but intensive course consists of 3 separate individual courses, increasingly more challenging, which will provide the opportunity of learning how to thread and prepare your sewing machine effectively and will explore a wide selection of hand and machine sewing techniques including applique, embroidery, attaching a pocket and refining several different seam constructions. You will use a variety of materials related to sewing including fabrics, zippers, interfacings and several types of cloth. The complexity of these techniques will progress to allow you to both design and create a selection of sewn items, during this 15-week course. Once completed you can further extend your learning by progressing to the pre-advanced L1 Beginners Dressmaking and Sewing course.
