New classes and workshops

Blimey, the year has started at a gallop, but I’m trying to get ahead of myself.  Details of new classes and workshops starting in February below.  I’m getting March dates booked and have Easter in mind……..

As always, if you need more info or would like to discuss in more detail, email me at thiswasmadeby[at]gmail.com or give me a ring on 01273 775951.  Look forward to hearing from you.

REGULAR CLASSES & COURSES:

PATTERN-CUTTING – TROUSERS
A 6 week course for beginners and students who have previously drafted skirt patterns.  On this course students who have done some pattern cutting before will draft a trouser block and design and make your own trouser pattern.  Beginners will draft a skirt block and design and make your own skirt pattern.

  • Held at Just Sew in Brighton (33 North Road, in the North Laine).
  • Class size limited to 4 people.
  • Starting on Thursday 10th March and finishing on 14th April.
  • 10am to midday.
  • £95 payable before the course starts (can be paid in installments, but must be paid in full by the start of the course).

DROP-IN SEWING – NEW FRIDAY MORNING CLASS!!!
If you’ve bought a sewing machine that’s now gathering dust in a cupboard, or are a more experienced sewer in  need of a bit of help with a new project, a few classes can help set you off in the right direction and boost your confidence.  Come along and make clothes, cushions, curtains, toys, do your own alterations, or whatever takes your fancy!
These classes can either be booked in blocks of 4, or paid per class, giving you the freedom to come to as many or as few as you feel you need.

  • Held at Just Sew in Brighton (33 North Road, in the North Laine).
  • Class size limited to 5 people.
  • Every Friday 10am-12pm.
  • Option 1 – £50 for 4 classes payable before the course starts (can be paid in installments, but must be paid in full by the start of the course).   You don’t have to come on 4 consecutive weeks, however, your 4 sessions must be used within 6 weeks of your first class.
  • Option 2 – pay per class at £15 each (must be booked and paid for in advance).

WORKSHOPS:

SUNDAY 20TH FEBRUARY – PATTERN-CUTTING WORKSHOP

If you missed the last one, it’s on again – this one-day workshop will teach you how to draft a basic skirt to your own measurements using flat pattern cutting techniques.  Previous students and those who have already drafted a skirt block are also welcome and will work on trousers.

  • Held at Just Sew in Brighton (33 North Road, in the North Laine).
  • Class size limited to 4 people.
  • 11am to 4pm.

SUNDAY 27TH FEBRUARY – SKIRT-MAKING WORKSHOP

If you want a focused day of learning to sew, with a lovely end result to show for it, this is the workshop for you.  At this one day intensive workshop you will learn the basics of reading a pattern and using a sewing machine whilst making an a-line skirt.  Pattern provided, just bring some fabric and a zip.  See the impressive results of last month’s workshop at Purl in this post.

  • Held at Just Sew in Brighton (33 North Road, in the North Laine).
