About Course

The introduction is the first of a 3 part course on Sustainable Fashion and Textiles

It's for people who want to learn to sew and would like to build their confidence in designing and making clothes.

Every week we will be doing simple sewing projects with a focus on sustainability, using recycled materials and clothes

By the end of the course you will be able to successfully thread up a sewing machine and be able to sew at a beginner/intermediate level- depending on your sewing machine knowledge. Your new sewing skills will give you the confidence to tackle any new sewing project.

We are teaching "Sustainable" fashion and textiles because it is becoming increasingly important to consider our environment and our quality of life for oursleves and others.

The fashion and textile industries have a big impact on our environment and its up to us to stay imformed and understand what part we play.
