Why not join us for our very own Transformation Challenge.
We will ask you to make a garment based on a surprise theme and will provide you with items of clothing, household textiles and haberdashery items to make your outfit.
Our very own Esme and Patrick will judge the entries and the winner will walk away with our own unique trophy!
Meet new people, learn new skills, and have a great time showcasing your talent – a great way to spend a few hours!
A love of sewing, imagination, resourcefulness, lateral thinking, ingenuity, a desire to have fun, and an ability to use a sewing machine.

This is a classroom-based, workshop-style, fun learning experience.
With a fun theme as your inspiration and working with a range of donated and recycled textiles, you will use your imagination and ingenuity to re-fashion, re-use, and recycle textiles to produce a creative, original and unique new piece.
Thinking outside of the box will enable you to imagine, design and construct a sewn piece showcasing your artistic, resourceful inventiveness.
Your confidence will develop as your practical ability, skills and understanding, and knowledge of sewing techniques are utilised.
Tutor advice, guidance and practical support will be available throughout the 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?
We offer a range of sewing and creative courses 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.
