* AFTERNOON CLASS * Creative making on the sewing machine (applique cushion or tote style bag)

Date: 3 December 2017 14:30 to 17:00
Details:
Drawing inspiration from some of  Barley Massey’s upcycled designs, ‘Creative Making on the machine’ has been developed for participants new to using a sewing machine, wishing to combine creative re use, fabric construction and machine sewing to transform items of old clothing or fabric remnants into practical objects. The focus in this class will be making a cushion cover or tote style bag. This is an ideal follow on class to the morning ’Provisional Driving’ introduction to using a sewing machine class. A discount is offered when you book for the full day!


On completion of this class, participants will confidently be able to:

- use a sewing machine.

- understand the principles of basic pattern making and cutting

- create decoration by combining decorative stitches and appliqué

- make a 3d functional object

- Realise your creative ideas into a personalised cushion cover or tote style bag


TIME: 2.30 - 5pm

PRICE: £30 / £25 concession OR £50 / £45 when you book the FULL DAY

Includes all materials (but you are welcome to bring your own) and refreshments.
