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.
Some of the areas covered may include:
- Overlocker Skills – decorative stitches, change threads
- Sewing machine skills
- Sewing techniques
- Construction processes, techniques and methods requested by learners
Tutor demonstration, advice, guidance and practical support will be given throughout the session.
You will need to bring with you some fabric, threads, haberdashery. The tutor will talk with you and answer any questions you may have at the induction session.
There are sewing machines and some sewing equipment for your use at the centre, scissors, pins, etc. However, you may wish to bring your own sewing tools and equipment.
If you wish to bring your own sewing machinery and is more than 1 year old, it must hold a current PAT test certificate. The tutor will need to see evidence.
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.
Where can it lead?
You may wish to progress to a full cost mixed ability Sewing Skills course to further your skills by working on a self-chosen textile project or enrol on a sewing workshop to learn specific techniques and processes.
We offer a range of creative course which can assist you in developing your own skills and interests.
As a Hull Training and Adult Education learner you have access to our Careers Advice Service. Our advisers are on hand to guide you through options and support you to achieve your full potential. Ask your tutor to refer you, if required.
