Other arts, crafts and textiles courses.
Sewing machines and other large equipment is supplied, but you should aim to bring your own “easy” dress or accessory pattern and basic sewing kit of scissors, pins & needles, and a tape measure to the first session (all can be bought for about £5). You will need to supply all other materials and threads etc. for the project and this cost depends on the fabric purchased, but we encourage re-using, recycling and love charity shops! We also have stock of trim, dress patterns and fabric to practice on at The Textile Workshop.
