There may be opportunities to progress onto other courses both in the community and at Nottingham College centres. The course tutor can discuss appropriate opportunities if you wish to further your learning in this subject area.
Sewing machines and other large equipment is supplied, but learners should aim to bring their own basic sewing kit of scissors, pins & needles, and a tape measure to the first session (all can be bought for about £5). All materials and threads etc. for the project need to be supplied by the learner, this cost depends on the fabric purchased, but we encourage re-using, recycling and love charity shops!
