This is the perfect course for me, because it's like being taught by a patient, loving auntie. I learned a whopping amount in my first two hours and left feelling super-confident. Marjorie and her team are kind, encouraging professionals and this is excellent value for money!
This is a such a fantastic class and I am so pleased I've signed up. I learned so much in even my first lesson and I now have some useful new sewing skills. Marjorie is a patient and encouraging professional who gives clear and detailed instructions. I am definitely coming back!
I have struggled with braiding for many years and tried desperately to teach myself and with no success. I have attended other workshops and even tried to learn from friends but I just could not get the hang of it. I did not have high expectations of this workshop as I just could not get my head around it however two and a half hours later I could confidently braid single plats, twists and canerow. Rose (the instructor) went through the fundamentals with me and she was very patience. Very good teacher. I was shown other techniques - tree braids, tree canerows, braiding and twisting with extensions and Rose went over the steps I had to do if I wanted to become a professional. Have already recommended this class to friends and I will be attending again too as there is loads more to learn.
You are taught from basic techniques to advance within a short time. Easy to understand the teaching methods and you are taught how to design your bag, pattern make,cut and sew including fabric layout and design to final finish. Its fantastic and rewarding!!!
I have been coming to this class since the end of March 2012 as a complete beginner and it is a relaxed yet informative course. Your experience will be tailor made for your abilities and you get to meet different people at different stages of the course. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced you will learn new things. Try and bring a basic sewing kit to your first lesson. After 8 lessons I have made pyjama trousers, a long pencil skirt and I am in the process of making a more complex skirt with pleats, zip and pockets. I am really enjoying this new hobby of mine!
I got to know about the Course through an Advert and i joined the class over three years ago,as a beginner then, to Intermediate and Advance,looking back,i can say,i have really gained a lot. I have since then been making loads of things by myself and for others. A relaxed atmosphere,the experienced tutors are really amazing,as they take us through various practical sessions,it affords me the opportunity to meet with other learners from various backgrounds.Vic
An affordable course in a friendly atmosphere where you can learn and understand the basics of dressmaking and pattern designing, achieve quick results to start with and progress at your own pace (the structure of the course is quite flexible)
The tutors are very well qualified and with good many years experience in Fashion and Dressmaking techniques because just within 2 weeks, I can cut patterns and sew even though I stanted as a beginner!
