Sewing Beginners - Semester One, 2019

Sewing Beginners - Semester One, 2019

This is an introductory course to the basics of sewing on a domestic sewing machine. You will learn how to set up a machine, use different stitches and feet, basic care, maintenance and trouble-shooting. Once the basics are mastered, you'll get the opportunity to try out different seam types and simple construction to make your own simple project (such as a cushion or tote bag); or learn simple upcycling and customising tips for up-styling your wardrobe, like adjusting hems, taking in and letting out. Benefit from the experience and innovative approach to textiles and the environment that your tutor, Fiona Jenkin will bring to each session. Fiona is a key member and founder of Just Atelier, a local solution to a global problem of social and environmental waste in the fashion industry). This course will give you the confidence to use of the OUSA stock of sewing machines for your own, un-tutored projects. The possibilities of modern sewing are endless. (all materials included)
