Dressmaking Course – All Levels
This dressmaking course is suitable for all levels and gives you the freedom to work on your chosen project with help and guidance from our experienced dressmaking teacher. As well as fitting and help with perfecting your sewing techniques, you’ll get to take the course at your own pace and have lots of sewing chat! Our daytime class is taught by Alex Pocknell and runs for 6 weeks (2 hours per class) and our evening class is taught by Caroline Akselson and is 5 weeks (2.5 hours per class).
If you’re a beginner dressmaker we can help you get started with your first dressmaking project, and if you’re a more experienced sewist who wants guidance with a specific project or techniques, we’ll help with that too!
Our sewing classes are relaxed and friendly, taking place at our beautiful studio at Holme Grange Craft Village in Wokingham, Berkshire. Students get to use our brand new digital Janome sewing machines and class sizes are capped at 8 to ensure everyone gets the time and attention they need.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
You’ll need to bring your chosen pattern and required fabric and notions, including matching thread, zips etc. If you’re not sure what to make or need any guidance, please Contact Us before the course and we can give you some advice.
You don’t need to bring a sewing machine or sewing kit (scissors, pens, pencils, unpickers etc) as our sewing studio is fully equipped.
Improver (3) and upwards. Please note, this is not a beginner sewing class – you do need to know how to use a sewing machine comfortably, but you can be new to dressmaking. If you’re unsure please check our class levels here. Our Introduction to Sewing class is the best for complete beginners to sewing.
