Come and make your own clothes. You will learn the art of reading a pattern, cutting , making, stitching and how to get the best from your sewing machine. Previous experience of machine sewing is needed for this exciting course.
Students enrolling on this course should have some sewing experience already. They should be able to thread a sewing machine, understand the basics of how they work and be able to sew in a straight line. If you think if might be too advanced please take a look at our Sewing for Beginners course. Materials needed for the first class include pencil, paper and a small sewing kit. The first project will be a small bag, materials will be provided by the tutor. You will then discuss what is needed for the second class, which will include Dressmaking scissors, Pins (these MUST have coloured ends) Assorted sewing needles, Tailors chalk/pencil, Seam ripper (unpicker), Tape Measure, Notepad and pen, Seam Gauge (optional), Pin cushion (optional), Trimming scissors (optional).

Please note: All 10, 8 and 12 week courses have a half term break in the middle. For term dates please visit our ‘Contact us’ page. We are not open on bank holiday Monday’s and any class that falls on these days will be made up at the end of term.

If a course has already started please call the office as it may be possible to join after the start date. This may only be possible if the course is not already full, if it is not disruptive for the other students and you are aware that you have missed a percentage of the course and the tutor will not have time to catch you up. This will be at discretion of the Folk House. We run our courses termly, so it might be best to start at the beginning of the course.
