Weekly Class - Open Sewing Lessons
This class will run weekly on:
-Tuesday from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
-Wednesday 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
This class is good for those with some previous sewing experience who are looking to enhance or work on projects they have already begun, or are looking to begin however don’t know where to start. If you don’t currently have a project there will still be plenty to learn in this class from The System’s archive of skills, finishes, textiles and pattern library. This class is aimed at creating space for students to harness their own autonomy in a studio environment. Students will be shown work from The System, taught techniques that are common in the fashion industry and also encouraged to develop their own.
Each week you will be exposed to a new technique or finish from The System. You will also learn how to develop your own personal skills through your own project.
-All equipment and some materials will be provided such as scissors, snips, and pins. Their use is included in the cost of the course.
-A variety of sampling textiles for different purposes and skill levels.
-Most work will be completed on domestic sewing machines which will be provided. If you have your own machine that you are familiar with, you are welcome to bring it along, you may learn more about it through our class.
