About the Taster
During this 2.5 hour dress making course, you'll be led by talented and experienced instructors through creating your own block or pattern for the garment you'd like to make. After that, they'll advise you on how to go about with the construction process using your domestic sewing machine at home. They'll also tell you which aspects of your garment might require the use of the industrial sewing machines they have in the design studio. If you decide to continue with a second class, you can expect the instructors to go over more detailed sewing techniques like waistbands, hems and zippers. Also, you'll receive expert, one-on-one tuition through each step of your garment construction process.

What's great about it?
No worries if you've never even threaded a needle - some experience would be great but it's definitely not necessary for this dress making class. All levels are welcome from the absolute beginner to the more experienced student looking to take their skills in a new and more creative direction.

Times Available
Classes are held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7 - 9:30pm.
