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 you should aim to bring your own basic sewing kit of scissors, pins and needles, and a tape measure to the first session (all can be bought for about £5).
