An exciting opportunity to learn or re-familiarise yourself with a series of pattern cutting and sewing techniques that could be relevant to present projects, or inspire future sewing projects. The pattern cutting adaptations can be created from ‘existing’ commercial patterns or patterns you have drafted yourself. Sessions will include a video detailing the instructions on the specified technique, followed by a comprehensive step-by-step PowerPoint presentation for you to work along with at home with tutor support every step of the way.
Each week you will also be encouraged to work on your own projects and there will be opportunities to ask for advice and assistance from the tutor and peers, (the tutor will also take group requests for demo’s if the subject is beneficial for all learners).
