Description

This intensive sewing course builds on the Introduction to Professional Sewing Skills - Part 1 and is student led. The purpose of the program is to give an effective learning environment that provides the learner with an opportunity to further develop and improve their sewing technique and practice.  The independent structure allows for each student to work on an individual project and make the maximum use of class time. Students can expect to build upon their own personal understanding of their level of sewing and improve their techniques while on the course. 

There will be a small show on the last day, which provides students with an opportunity to showcase their individual projects. 

Topics covered

Skills covered during the course include:

  • Cost effective cutting
  • Time management
  • Lining and finishing

The format of the course is structured around aid by samples of step-by-step procedures, working within pairs or groups of four as necessary. Students should be prepared to take detailed notes during tutor demonstrations in order to effectively apply them to their own practice and project.

Entry requirements

This course follows on from Introduction to Professional Sewing Skills - Part 1 and is appropriate for students that have attended the first course or those with reasonable sewing skills. This would include students that are sewing beginners in skill, however, they must be familiar with the techniques covered during Part 1. This would also include those that are skilled in patterncutting and have some basic sewing skills that they would like to improve. While it is also suggested that students that have taken the Made to Measure Womenswear course can also benefit from enrollment.
