Sewing and Dressmaking Club

Meet sewers, improve your sewing skills and get advice with your dressmaking

Dressmaking Sewing club for beginners and improvers – weekly term time.
This class is for students who have completed one of our absolute beginners courses or workshops and want to improve and start honing their sewing skills and join the world of making their own clothes.  It is also suitable if you are at a good beginner level and need to improve and advance your techniques.
In this class if you are just starting to make clothes we suggest options for you to start on your journey or you can bring your own pattern for the slightly more confident and adventurous, as long as you have discussed and agreed this with the teacher, who will make sure if your project will fit within the terms lesson and learning plans.
