Who it’s for:
This course is aimed at people who own a sewing machine and would like to develop their textile design skills to create unique designs and projects.
What you’ll learn:
This five-week course will help you familiarise yourself with your sewing machine whilst teaching various tricks such as:
- basic sewing machine operations including threading a spool, tensions, and different stitches
- using ‘bondaweb’ to layer fabrics
- combining materials to develop, and removing layers to reveal, colours and textures
- hand stitching and applique
You will also be encouraged to develop your own style by choosing a self-directed project. Examples such as wall hangings, lampshades and cushions will be available to inspire you if needed, and regular demonstrations will be provided.
