Sew the basics and master the machine - From Slo Bro to Sew Hero! For week course!
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
It’s really not that tricky. Once you’ve mastered the basics you will be whizzing up that little A line mini in the time it takes to say ‘Mary Quant’. Sewing machines look like tricky beasts, and have been known to behave like one, but learning machine etiquette will get you off to a flying start.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS WORKSHOP?
In this 3 week series you will be taught solid machine skills and basic pattern instructions in an inspiring environment with a brilliant teacher. You will learn the fundamentals of sewing machine etiquette and create your very own project bag and apron.
Sorry if you were expecting a floaty three-tiered number but once you have become master of the bag then you are set on the path to a lifetime of creating and making - and of course not just clothes. Think cushions, curtains and napkins…...anything squarish.
Week One – Learn how to thread a sewing machine, check tension, trouble shoot, sew seam allowances, pin correctly, match seams perfectly and use some of our special tools to make a nifty little fully lined project bag.
Week Two & Three – Learn to prepare fabric and cut correctly a commercial pattern for a denim/linen apron. We will explore the overlocker, (your new favourite machine) stitch a patch pocket, practice hems, attach a webbing and learn finishing techniques for a extremely well made practical item.
So line up and thread up. You are now officially about to become a sewing hero.
