Simple Garment Construction

September 5 - November 21


Join this immersive 12-week sewing course in which you will master essential techniques and construction methods for creating clothing. Students will master sewing machine operation, explore textiles and notions, gain an understanding of sewing patterns, and learn the ins and outs of how a garment is made. Throughout the class we will create a comprehensive sample book of construction techniques such as seams, hems, finishes, buttons and zippers, and much more.  Students will complete three finished garments using the skills learned throughout the class. All skill levels are welcome, and students are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines.
