This is a classroom-based, workshop-style, fun learning experience.
Using bits of haberdashery and scraps of fabric, you will learn how to create patch-as–you-go fabric which you will then use to construct a lined Christmas stocking.
Your confidence will develop as your practical ability, skills, understanding and knowledge of sewing techniques are utilised.
Tutor demonstration, advice, guidance and practical support will be given throughout the session
To create the patchwork fabric please bring with you ribbons, lace and fabric remnants in the Christmas colours of your choice.
You will also need approximately half a metre of a plain fabric for the lining and half a metre of a Christmassy fabric for the outside of the stocking.
You may also wish to bring matching thread.
There are sewing machines and some sewing equipment, for example scissors, pins, etc. for your use at the centre. However, you may wish to bring your own sewing tools and equipment. If you wish to bring your own sewing machinery it must hold a current PAT test certificate. The tutor will need to see evidence of this before it can be used.
This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment.
RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five-stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.
