Summer Crafts — Part-time

Course outline

This six week course is perfect if you are a beginner and have an interest in learning new textile skills or if you would like to refresh your textile skills.

It will introduce you to textiles and you will learn the basics of a domestic sewing machine and be
able to explore and experiment with a range of techniques such as:

  • Patch work
  • Quilting
  • Applique

You will also gain experience in basic pattern cutting and sewing skills. A range of materials will be provided to you
