Join a class and learn sewing techniques which will allow you to create beautiful and individual pieces. Garment Construction Courses and One Day Workshops with Vikki will give you the freedom to develop these skills in a comfortable and positive environment. A maximum of 6 students per class ensures personal, attentive tuition.
Sew with Vikki Leigh Martin Offers a series of garment construction courses, developed with the beginner in mind. For example, students can enrol in the Introduction to Sewing course and then move on to Start to Sew 1 and Start to Sew 2. These three courses combine to create a thirty hour program and two completed garments. Vikki has also developed a range of courses for teenagers beginning with a two part course Introduction to Sewing and Sew Simple Sleepwear. Once the beginner course has been completed teenage students begin General Sewing classes and are encouraged to complete projects in garment construction, Bag Making and Cushion Making.
