Beginners Intensive Sewing Course: Learn to sew like a pro in 3 days!
The Beginners intensive sewing course for adults will teach you all the foundation skills to launch you into the world of sewing. It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking soft furnishing or craft projects.
Starting at the very beginning with how to use a sewing machine each session expands on the skills learnt in the previous one building your knowledge technical ability and confidence over the three days (18 hours in total). You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines and be competent and confident in using one. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to handle measure and cut a variety of fabrics interfacing interlining and tackle common fastenings such as buttons zips and velcro.
The course is composed of a series of tutorials each followed by a lovely project. So you can practise the skills learnt in that session.
While other providers are packing in up to 12 people per course Artisan Stitch has a maximum of 5 places per course. Not only does this enable me to make your tuition more personal and individual it’s also far safer too! The most exclusive sewing courses available!
I’ve been sewing since I was a child (and that’s a lot of years’ experience!). During that time I’ve made every mistake in the book – then learned how to avoid them. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips. I wish I’d known all this stuff when I started to sew.
