Creative Writing

Learn basic tools of the trade such as how to create and develop characters, plot,structure and narrative.

Professional Sewing Techniques

Jackets can be a mine field with so many different parts and techniques placed in one garment. This course will help you understand the different parts of the jacket and how to put them together without the added stress. It will build your confidence so that you can attempt any style jacket with ease.

Upcycle and Recyle

A sewing machine can be useful when you know how to use it. It can kick start your creativity from shortening that skirt or trousers that drags on the floor, upcycling that old top that fit perfect but now has a hole in the sleeve or make that perfect outfit from scratch for any occasion. Clothes can be brought to life with a simple trim, scrap fabric or making it into something completely new.
