Learn the essential sewing skills you need to get you started in this one-day workshop. You'll take away your own lined bag and lots of ideas and inspirations for further projects.   

 A list of materials to bring (approximate cost $50) will be sent out when course numbers are confirmed.

By the end of the workshop, you'll have been introduced to basic sewing skills and you'll be able to:
• Use sewing machine equipment and demonstrate basic sewing techniques (basic seams and finishes)
• Cut out and construct a lined bag using techniques learned
• Line a bag
• Work on a pin cushion (if time allows)

Note:  Courses need a minimum number to go ahead so if we don't have enough enrolments a few days before the start date, we have to cancel. We'll let you know by email so please check yours regularly. If you need to cancel your registration, here are our terms and conditions: "What You Need to Know".


If you are bringing your own sewing machine to class, we recommend an Electrical Compliance Certificate for all privately-owned electrical equipment used on courses at Wellington High School.
