Course Content

This is a classroom-based, workshop-style, learning experience where you will build upon and consolidate your prior knowledge by working on a self-chosen, individual textile project which will grow your skills step by step.

During the course you will observe tutor demonstrations and explanations of techniques and processes which support and meet individual needs of personal projects undertaken.

Some of the areas covered may include:

  • Sewing machine skills – presser feet, machine needles, accessories
  • Sewing techniques such as buttonholes, zip insertion, bias binding
  • Overlocker skills
  • Construction processes, techniques and methods requested by learners

Tutor demonstration, advice, guidance and practical support will be given throughout the course.

You will need to bring fabric, patterns, threads, haberdashery with you.

 The tutor will talk with you, and answer any questions you may have, at the induction session.

Assessment Method

This is a RARPA based course, assessment is carried out though building of a portfolio and taking part within tasks matched to the individual’s personal targets.

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.
