This is a classroom-based, workshop-style, learning experience.
Bring along your patterns and we will decipher the information given and how to use it when constructing a garment.
Tutor demonstration, advice, guidance and practical support will be given throughout the session.
Please bring a commercial pattern with you. A notebook may be handy.
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 and is more than 1 year old, 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.
