I have just completed a 20 day course with Imtaz where I learnt the art of pattern cutting, fitting and then sewing the complete garments. I made the following: a tailored skirt, dress and softly tailored jacket. I also went away with a trouser pattern and top patterns, pluss plenty of ideas for garments to flatter my figure, this in itself was a revelation for me and I now feel a lot more confident about choosing and creating garments. I was lucky enough to find a local B&B which was perfect, Imtaz also introduced me to the local yoga centre where I had a try at the art of meditation. Well home again in Norway I can only say how much I thoroughly enjoyed this whole indulgent experience. Thankyou Imtaz. So if you are looking to take your sewing skills to the next level - what are you waiting for? - go ahead and book. Catherine
I spent a wonderful day with Imtaz. I learnt so much as she is a wonderful teacher. I couldn't believe I could learn so many new skills in one day - this takes my dressmaking to a new level as now i can create my own patterns. All I have to do now is put it into practice!
Imtaz is very warm and welcoming and i really enjoyed the opportunity to work with someone who has so much skill and experience. I booked a one day course with Imtaz to refresh some pattern cutting skills and I did not leave disappointed.
Your class though it was two years ago now is the only class where I have learned from start to finish how to make the things I wanted to make, and though I am rusty on practise I still feel what I've learned was so valuable that I can start again confidently.
This was a fantastic course - relaxed, enjoyable and so informative. I can't believe how much I learned in just a single day. I really feel propelled to the next level of sewing and am putting my new skills to good use. Very much hoping to arrange another visit in the near future! (Sarah, Belfast)
