GARMENT MAKING CLASSES
Build skills and confidence in making clothes by making an item of clothing of your choice supported by your tutor in this guided class. We will help you choose an appropriate project for your level of sewing, guide you through pattern and fabric choices and help you to make your garment.
Produce a handmade garment and gain the confidence to start your own clothes making or other sewing projects at home.
- How to follow a pattern
- How to choose appropriate materials for your project
- How to cut your pattern pieces
- How to sew darts and fit a garment

Sewing projects vary a lot in the time in takes to complete them and the number of classes you require will depend on your project and work speed. Your initial booking is for 9 teaching hours (2 days or 4 evenings) but you will have the option to stay on in the class on a rolling basis thereafter.

HOW TO BOOK IN:
You can book an initial block of 4 evening classes or 2 daytime classes through this website page. For students that want to stay on, we operate a pay-as-go-you system. We will send you a payment agreement using the WorldPay FuturePay facility. This will enable us to take payment from a card for 2 classes, every 2 weeks in advance, on a rolling basis.
You can leave the class at any time but we do ask for 2 weeks notice.
INCLUDED IN THE CLASS FEE:
Tutoring, sewing machine and tool use and basic sundries only – we will help you to source your own fabric, thread and accessories for your project.
If you would like to use your own sewing machine in the class that’s absolutely fine – just bring it along.
HOW OUR CLASSES WORK:
Our garment sewing classes are mixed level and mixed project – other people in the class will be making different projects to you.
Tuition is given on an individual basis at each student’s bench to ensure a fully COVID-secure working and learning environment.
We run waiting lists for cancellation spaces on all of our fully booked courses – to be added to a list please email email@example.com. Please consider including your telephone number, as spaces sometimes become available at short notice.
