Part of:
Applied Craft Workshops

This course is ideal for anyone that has completed the Beginners Sewing Workshop or for those who have some experience of sewing and are fairly comfortable around a sewing machine. This class is aimed to improve your basic skills up to the next level.

Within this class we will be making a Messenger bag with a zippered pocket and adjustable strap. We will work together to follow the pattern and construct the bag, also learning about interfacing, fusible fleece and how to use bias binding along the way. You'll come home with a fantastic, professional-looking bag and feel even more confident in your ability to sew! In addition, we will take time to look at other techniques and how to make adjustments or add pockets to existing clothes.  

Classes are small so you get plenty of hands-on tutition from tutor, Rebecca Barbour, and learn how to sew in a friendly and easy-going environment.  

Skills that you will learn:

  • Cutting out patterns & fabric accurately
  • Sewing pockets
  • Sewing zipped pockets
  • Buttonholes
  • Sewing Bias Binding
  • Adjustable straps

After this class you'll be able to apply these different techniques to all those projects you have lined up and be inspired to keep on creating!

£120 - all materials are provided (though you can use your own fabric if you'd prefer), plus tea & coffee.  Just bring a packed lunch and your sewing machine.

Accommodation is available in the Old Brewery.

We require 25% deposit to reserve your place - email or tel 01381 600354 for a Booking Form or more info.
