Dressmaking and Craft Sewing

Ref: C3675943

Each week you will be shown a sewing related demonstration. You are required to reproduce the sample for a folder of work to show your learning and development on the course. Once the class work is complete you can continue with your own personal project. The idea is that the samples demonstrated and produced can feed into your own work to enhance it, it will also broaden your craft sewing and dressmaking knowledge. You must produce the samples each week and produce a folder of work which you can use for a reference file. During your time on your personal project the tutor will encourage and support your needs.
