Workshop details:

Under the guided tuition of Courtney Rapple, who has over 15 years experience in sewing, a BA Hons in interior design & 6 years experience teaching Art & Textiles, you will be given a guided tour of the sewing machine. You will learn how to properly thread your machine, how to perform basic, regular maintenance to keep your machine in top condition & how to create a variety of sewn items using a range of skills.

Once you have learnt to thread the machine you will make a fabric storage basket to keep all of those lovely little sewing notions in.

The following week you will make a pin cushion with a front pocket that will hold your sewing scissors, pins & clips.

After that we will move onto an envelope cushion with machined buttonholes.

Finally, we will complete the course with a fully lined zippered storage/cosmetic bag.
