In this Workshop
you will learn how to easily make garments for you or your kids.
1.The world of materials:
We will be using most of our senses to understand numerous types of textiles. We will Introduce different fabric types, their characteristics, uses and other details. You will pick the pieces/offcuts that you like and then we will sew them together to create the fabric you will use for the garment. Exciting!
2. Creative Pattern and Cutting:
You will learn how easy it is to transform basic patterns in order to make your own creative design. We will create patterns from trousers or tops and use it as a guide to cut the future garment.
3. Sewing while chatting and enjoying a tea break:
Using the machines, we will bring our designs to life while enjoying a tea break.
Overall we will be exploring the amazing world of textiles, patterns and sewing.
