sewing for men
An ideal chance to find out what is involved in sewing and the construction of clothes for men.
An informal 2 hour ‘taster’ session to dispel the myths and mystery of sewing and the equipment that goes with it.
Items covered include -
Choosing suitable patterns and fabric
Using a sewing machine and how it works
What projects to avoid if you’re a beginner
Fitting and measuring basics
Following on from this we have an exciting series of workshops planned - – all with men’s sewing in mind.:
Learn how to make Aprons, Bags, Shirts, Trousers and Techniques (such as alterations).
Please note that it may be necessary to take measurements for garment sizing and fitting during these workshops - for this reason these particular sessions are for 'men only' We recommend our PITCH UP AND STITCH sessions held on the alternate Tuesdays for women.
