Join us for this six week dressmaking course with the highly talented Amanda Walker.

For the past twenty-seven years Amanda’s design work has encompassed one-off wedding dresses, special occasion outfits, clothes for major toy brands such as Sindy Dolls and millinery. She has also taught a variety of college courses from design and garment making to soft furnishings.Amanda regularly contributes to magazines such as Homemaker and Crafts Beautiful and in 2006 was voted ‘Designer of the Year’ and runner up in 2007.

You will need to bring to the first class:

A pattern – as this is a beginners course, avoid shirts with stiff collars or cuffs; a straight skirt is always a good garment to start with.

Fabric – again be mindful of the type of fabric; choose a well structured material, cottons and linens (not too fine), to begin with and not velvet .

Matching thread, zip, buttons, hooks, etc, as required.

Scissors, pins and a tape measure.

All students attending this course will qualify for a six week 10% discount card* for Franklins sewing stores.
