If you have never used a sewing machine before (or if you haven’t used one for a while), then this is the course for you!
We have devised a three-week programme of regular evening sessions, designed to give you all the skills you need to begin or progress your journey into the wonderful world of sewing.
Week 1 – Conquer your Sewing Machine and Tote Bag
Week 2 – Button Up!
This week you’ll sew up a basic cushion cover and learn how to make a one-step buttonhole. For this session you’ll bring your own fabric to match your home décor (see 'Additional Information').
Week 3 – Get to Grips with a Zip!
For your final week, you’ll be tackling how to insert a zip into a lined make-up bag, sewn by your very own hands. All materials will be provided for this session so you don’t need to worry about bringing anything along.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or for those looking to refresh their skills.
Based at Pottery Corner in Chorlton, take the
opportunity to enjoy a wander down Beech Road awash with independent
boutiques, restaurants and delis before the class starts!
