Advancers: Sewing Classes
Have you attended our Introduction to Sewing Machine Basics and would like to progress further? Or just fancy becoming a bit more familar with a sewing machine, then this is the class for you!
A sewing class to show of your skills, with a chance to learn anything from free machine sewing, soft furnishings and basic alterations.
This class will also demonstrate how to up-cycle and re-work pieces of clothing to give them new life, re-styling and accessorising them creatively - helping you fall back in love with your old clothes or completley redesign them into another object such as a cushion, scarf or bag.
"Reusing what you already own instead of consuming more!"
Our experienced tutor Talula will guide you through making some easy, contemporary soft frunishings for your home or perhaps a friends.
You can bring current projects that you have and need assistance with
This class will be taught on our machines: the Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118, so you don't need to bring anything along. However if you have materials you would like to use for a product they can be bought to the session. You may also choose to purchase items from our haberdashery and shop. All the learning from this session will be transferable to your machine.
You can book using our 'early bird' rates up to 2 weeks prior to the session. Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. You can also book a class with our wonderful staff team and volunteers in person at the hub, 131 Wood st. Please note that cancellations up to 72 hours in advance are transferable to another date, after which the booking is non-transferable and non-refundable.
We also offer private sessions on a 1:1 basis and if you prefer with your own machine. Private lessons are £50 for a two hour session, timings/dates to be arranged between you and one of our tutors.
