Learn to Sew Men's Clothing Beginners Course






 + Break


Men (and women) of Australia! Hear your calling: learn to sew!

We know it can be difficult to find sewing patterns for men, and even harder to find sewing classes that cater to male garment-making. It's no wonder that it's tricky to find a man that sews! With this in mind, we've created a class that's designed to fill the gap. Ladies are also welcome to attend, but the focus is on sewing and fitting techniques for men's garments, with men's body measurements in mind.

Choose your own casual shirt or shorts pattern to work on during the course. We'll teach you about taking correct measurements throughout the process, reading a pattern and learning all the tricks of using a sewing machine correctly.

With a maximum number of 6 students per class, you'll get more one-on-one time with your teacher. This is a 1 day a week class over 6 sessions which gives you time in between to practice your new skills from home.
